Due to a weather problem a plane from Denmark is forced to land at the Slovene airport. Amongst the passengers, being taken to a hotel in Ljubljana, is a quiet, beautiful young Danish girl Iben (25). This is how she meets Tina (25) who drives a shuttle as a summer job. They both need each other, but are very careful because one of them is hiding a secret. They speak to each other in English and in their native languages. Only one of the two languages has the so-called dual, a special grammatical form used in expressions that involve just two subjects. The other language does not. Dual is an honest story about two people who meet precisely at the moment when they absolutely should not have - but they are nevertheless a bit happier because they did.Written by
Young Slovene director Nejc Gazvoda directs a melancholic tale of two lonely people.
The importance of chance meetings cannot be neglected in the lives of human beings as they prepare them to discover life and its varied facets.Slovenian film "Dual" is about one chance meeting which completely transforms the lives of its protagonists.The film begins with a plane from Denmark making an unscheduled landing at a Slovene airport due to technical problems.This plane's passengers are housed at a hotel in downtown Ljubljana where a young Danish girl decides to explore the city.This is the start of an important adventure in the boring lives of some young people."Dual" is an important film for a multilingual Europe where the youngsters don't have a common language.It is true that English languages often comes to their rescue but not at the cost of local languages.One can hear actresses speaking in both Danish as well as Slovene.This bittersweet film by director Nejc Gazvoda had its premiere at prestigious Karlovy Vary International Film Festival 2013.Later,it was shown at other film festivals namely International Film Festival of India 2013
