Two Lovers and a Bear

Fortnight 2016, Feature film, 1h36


We are in the Great North, near the North Pole, in a modern town where about two hundred souls live precariously in minus fifty weather, and where roads lead to nowhere but the endless white. It is in this eerie lunar landscape that Lucy and Roman, two young tormented souls, fell in love. But now, ghosts from Lucy’s past are coming back, and she needs to run away or she will burn. Together, these lovers decide to make a leap for life, a leap for inner peace. They head out in the Great White, where the strangeness makes one feel he is travelling inside of himself.


Kim Nguyen

Two Lovers and a Bear is Kim Nguyen’s fifth feature film. War Witch, his last film, won over 20 international awards, including a Silver Bear for Best Actress at the Berlin Int’l Film Festival 2012 and an Academy Award Nomination for Best Foreign Film.
