Avis des critiques

How [the 13-year-old] becomes a woman is not necessarily how she becomes a woman, it’s how society might view her as she crosses that threshold, it’s what many tell you makes you a woman, but that her choice towards one aspect of womanhood is taken from her, and taken from her violently (and with her mother enduring the same) gives Two Women an extra dose of sadness and, touchingly, strength.

A constant hassling-unto-harassment by most of the men Cesira and Rosetta meet, as well as short encounters with dogmatic German, ineffectual British, untouchable American, and shirtless Russian soldiers, fill out a theater of war that looks like a rich, tragic-comic spectacle, until a final act of violence forecloses the comic strain.
