Nina and Madeleine, two retired women, live in adjoining apartments – and have had a secret love affair for decades. In the eyes of everyone, including Madeleine’s family, they are merely neighbors. In fact, widowed, caring Madeleine and free-spirited, independent Nina share a tender life between their apartments and make plans for their future together. But a tragic incident threatens to reveal their secret. The poignant drama “Deux” tells of a lesbian relationship in old age and the irresistible desire for intimacy.
