Editorial Reviews

Europe 1990. The Berlin Wall has just crumbled: Katrine (Juliane Koehler), raised in East Germany, but now living in Norway for the last 20 years, is a war child" - the result of a romance between a Norwegian woman (Liv Ullmann) and a German occupation soldier during World War II. She enjoys a happy family life with her mother, her husband, daughter and granddaughter. But when a lawyer asks her and her mother to testify in a trial against the Norwegian state on behalf of the war children, she resists. Gradually, a web of concealments and secrecy is unveiled, until Katrine is faced with losing everything, and her loved ones are forced to take a stand: what matters more, the life they have lived together, or the lie it is based on?

Truly intelligent spy movies are in short supply these days. What with the end of the Cold War, it isn’t as if the current global political climate lends itself to the kinds of motion pictures exploring such subject matter in the previous few decades, and studios seem to have tried to crack the nut that is ‘the War on Terror’ in a decidedly different (say ‘unAmerican’) perspective whenever they get the chance. But for audiences hungry for those days when politically-based thrillers were far more about the individuals caught up secretly in the deeds and misdeeds of national governments, quality flicks are indeed in short supply … which is why I suspect they’ll be chomping at the big to sink their teeth into TWO LIVES. This is the kind of human spy drama Hollywood used to make – the 70’s were full of them – and it’s a welcome return (albeit a bit slow at times) to character drama in the world of spies.

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and/or characters. If you’re the type of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I’d encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you’re accepting of a few modest hints at ‘things to come,’ then read on …)

I’ll dispense with the usual tactic of culling the film synopsis from the product packaging (it’s far too involved for my tastes), and I’ll instead try to hit on a few salient points. TWO LIVES chiefly investigates the story of Katrine Evensen (played by a radiant Juliane Kohler), a “war child” whose mother was a Norwegian woman who engaged in an affair with an occupying Nazi soldier during World War II.

This taut, spare, compelling thriller shows us that wars are never over for the individuals or for the communities and nations engaged in and affected by war. Set against the historical threshold of the tearing down of the Berlin wall, this film shows how WWII, Norways role in it, East Germany's continuing loyalty to many of the Nazi ideals reaches with heart pounding force and reality into the eve of the 21st century. The reveal at the end is positively shocking. And for me, a great history lesson. A good gift for your local video library and a good addition to your own permanent collection.
