World Cinema Screening: De Tweeling

Sponsored by: New Haven Free Public Library

Twin sisters Lotte (Thekla Reuten) and Anna Bamberg (Nadja Uhl) are raised separately after their parents die. Lotte goes to live with rich relatives in the Netherlands, while Anna stays in Germany, enduring poverty on the farm of her stoic uncle. As adults, the pair long to reunite. But the outbreak of World War II, as well as growing social differences between them, risk keeping the two sisters permanently divided—especially when Anna marries a Nazi officer. This Dutch drama (with subtitles) was nominated for an Academy Award for best foreign film in 2003.  Come join us for the kickoff of our monthly classic international movie!
