Movie Info

Two men. Living on the exact opposite side of the world. When one sleeps, the other one is awake. But when they finally meet, a simple question arises: Who is the dream and who is the dreamer? Kaden (Boyd Holbrook) is a professional ski jumper in Whistler, Canada, unexpectedly presented with the chance of reconnecting with an ex-girlfriend who ghosted him years ago. Khai (Song Yang) is a corporate executive in Shanghai, China, faced with the fact that the girl he fantasizes about on the internet has just started working in his office. The two men go about their lives, without knowing that they are connected, but noticing some echoes -- like a distorted mirror. They slowly begin to realize that they might be dreaming each other. They are, in some strange way, the same person.

Nowhere to go, nothing to say. Just a cute narrative concept that ultimately eats itself.

It's a beautifully composed, enigmatic movie with a high-concept plot about two men on either side of the planet who are mysteriously connected by midlife despair and existential emptiness.

Top Critic

The rare example of an exceptionally well-made film, from an undeniably talented filmmaker, in which everything works beautifully except the central premise, which doesn't work at all.

Two/One escapes the pretentious tone it might have carried thanks to the self-assured way he grounds characters in the vivid, precise, beautifully shot details of their lives.

May 8, 2019 | Full Review…

Polished in its execution and playfully noncommittal in its storytelling, the film could be viewed as a metaphor for the disparate connections forged in a digital, globalised society.

A solid and pertinent portrait of two men. [Full review in Spanish]
