The Two of Us

Synopsis

With his Jewish family burdened by life in Nazi-occupied Paris, eight-year-old Claude is sent to live with a Catholic family in the Grenoble countryside. Forced to hide his identity, the mischievous boy develops an unlikely friendship with the irascible, dog-loving, anti-Semitic vegetarian Pépé (Simon) who is unaware of the boy’s heritage. The Two of Us was acclaimed director Claude Berri’s debut feature, based on own childhood experiences, and gave the legendary Simon one of his most memorable roles in the twilight of his career.
