When Hanah re-emerges in the life of her pre-pubescent daughter, she comes with a strange, yet attractive proposition: she needs her own girl to pose for her in ways that would later take by surprise the Parisian art world of the 1970s.
A young woman named Magdalena retrieves a postcard that had been cast into the wind by her biological mother (Bulle Ogier) from a seaside town in Portugal and discovers that she has a twin sister named Maria. From this seemingly introspective opening premise on identity, connection, and history, Deux diverges into unexpectedly abstract, non-intersecting trajectories that involve a schoolgirl attraction with a fellow classmate, a mother's wartime romance, a serial killer who leaves a tell-tale rose on the bodies of his victims, a lonely woman who adopts a fox as a household pet.Written by

This film is very hard to interpret. Isabelle Huppert said in her interview in Cannes that the story is a biographical film of the director. And she is just his messenger. "The film was written for me, but also for him. He projects in me. But it is a transfusion case, as if he came to inhabit in me – it's my heart, but his soul. I state his ghosts. He assumes that it is a film on him, that it speaks of his past, of his infancy. It is his unconscious in which he speaks". Two is a bohemian autobiography of the director told in surrealistic colours and consisting of visions, dreams, phobias and fantasies – a schism of reality.
