Feature Film

Two life stories. That of Malou, a French woman, married to a German jew, a refugee stranded in South America : a picture of the pre-war generation reflected in the unusual destiny of an individual woman. And that of Hannah, an alert, independent, modern woman, seeking after the freedom and her own identity, and trying in present-day Berlin to save her shaky marriage. Two love stories. Malou and Paul, the nostalgic fairytale : a dream couple beautiful, rich, romantically in love - a love story that can only end in tragedy. And Hannah and Arnim, a recognizably real married couple with all the acute problems of any contemporary two-person relationship.
Two women, two love stories : mother and daughter, two lives that sometimes mirror one another frequently cross, and constantly complement on another.
