    Brief synopsis

    Pensioners Nina (Barbara Sukowa) and Madeleine (Martine Chevallier) have hidden their deep and passionate love for many decades, but their bond is put to the test when they are suddenly unable to move freely between each other's apartments, in Filippo Meneghetti's bold, lustrous debut feature.
