Audience Reviews for Two Lives

  • Aug 01, 2014
    A nuanced drama that gradually unfolds as it delves into the complex dilemma faced by a protagonist who cannot escape her tragic web of lies, but the contrived last act has a completely unnecessary flashback that almost undermines the power of her final decision.

    With the Berlin Wall coming down, you would presume everybody would be celebrating. And then there is Katrine(Juliane Kohler) who has mixed feelings even though her daughter Anne(Julia Bache-Wiig), a single mother, has just met a lawyer, Sven(Ken Duken). His presence into their lives comes of a lawsuit Sven is planning on filing on behalf of Norwegian children who were sent to Germany to be raised during World War II and never returned. So, Katrine travels back to Germany for the first time in decades in disguise to hide any traces of herself in the official records. Inspired by a true story, "Two Lives" is an understated, downbeat, well-acted and nuanced look at people who are caught up in the deceptions and wheels of history where for some the fiction has become the reality. Just as much, there are no heroes and the villains only work in the shadows. Sadly, the movie errs in how it dispenses information, and not just in its tricky opening sequence. This becomes especially important later on, as until the final endnote, it is implied that Katrine was a totally isolated case which would have made the depicted events that much more contrived.
