"Two in the Wave" is the story of a friendship, a true friendship, of the kind that ends badly. 1950. Jean-Luc Godard is twenty years old, François Truffaut two years younger. Love of movies brings them together. Soon they attend the same film clubs, write in the same magazines, Cahiers du Cinema and Arts... Through the 1960s the two loyally support each other. History and politics separate them in 1968, when Godard plunges into radical politics but Truffaut continues his career as before. Between the two of them, the actor Jean-Pierre Léaud is torn like a child caught between two separated and warring parents. Their friendship and their break-up embody the story of French cinema.
