De Tweeling (Twin Sisters)


De Tweeling (Twin Sisters) based on the novel The Twins by Tessa de Loo. 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. Only in her old age, when they meet again at a spa and after Anna's death, does Lotte reconcile herself to their divergent lives and reclaim the tender sibling feeling of her childhood. The two girls/women are each played by three different actors from the Netherlands and Germany.
