Run Time: 102 minutes

Sometimes the perfect person appears at the worst possible time. Such is the dual nature of fate and the case for Iben and Tina. Iben has a dark secret, and Tina is on the eve of a life-changing interview. When Iben's flight is cancelled, Tina drives her and the other stranded passengers to a hotel. With a glance a connection is made. Facing uncertain futures and with unhappy pasts, they decide to risk everything. Iben speaks Danish. Tina speaks Slovenian. They communicate only in English, a language unique for words having dual meanings. Are they speaking the truth to each other or finally speaking it to themselves? What exactly is happening, and is it the bravest thing they've ever done or the most catastrophic? Beautifully filmed and featuring superbly natural performances, DUAL is filled with wonderful moments of charm and heart-tugging honesty. Like leaves in a cyclone, passions and words fly about in this exhilarating film, keeping you breathlessly wondering where this crazy love is going to lead them. All of this makes DUAL a singular and joyous experience. (In English, Slovenian, and Danish with subtitles) —C.R.
