What happens when a screenwriter (Brooks) loses his edge, he turns to anyone he can for help... even if it's the mythical "Zeus's Daughter" (Stone). And he's willing to pay, albeit reluctantly, whatever price it takes to satisfy this goddess, especially when her advice gets him going again on a sure-fire script. However, this is not the limit of her help, she also gets the writer's wife (MacDowell) going on her own bakery enterprise, much to the chagrin of Brooks, who has already had to make many personal sacrifices for his own help.

And then there is Katrine(Juliane Kohler) who has mixed feelings even though her daughter Anne(Julia Bache-Wiig), a single mother, has just met a lawyer, Sven(Ken Duken). His presence into their lives comes of a lawsuit Sven is planning on filing on behalf of Norwegian children who were sent to Germany to be raised during World War II and never returned. So, Katrine travels back to Germany for the first time in decades in disguise to hide any traces of herself in the official records. Inspired by a true story, "Two Lives" is an understated, downbeat, well-acted and nuanced look at people who are caught up in the deceptions and wheels of history where for some the fiction has become the reality. Just as much, there are no heroes and the villains only work in the shadows. Sadly, the movie errs in how it dispenses information, and not just in its tricky opening sequence. This becomes especially important later on, as until the final endnote, it is implied that Katrine was a totally isolated case which would have made the depicted events that much more contrived.
