The Two of Them/Two Women
Two women become entangled in a friendship that transcends age and social class.
Dir Márta Mészáros
With Marina Vlady, Lili Monori, Jan Nowicki, Zsuzsa Czinkóczi
Both compromised by inadequate marriages, two women become entangled in a friendship that transcends age and social class. Monori and Nowicki, in roles that were written for them, reunite to play a destructive couple. It’s their passion, despite their difficulties, that shows Mari (Vlady) the hidden tragedy of her own marriage. Meanwhile, silently, the troubled couple’s child (Czinkóczi, seen later in the Diary films) bears uncomfortable witness to the lies of adulthood.
