Et usædvanligt, livslangt forhold mellem to ældre kvinder når sin ende i en enkel, smuk og dybt rørende indonesisk debutfilm.

70-årige Kaminah og Kusdalini på 74 år har kendt hinanden, siden de som helt unge mødtes i fængslet under det indonesiske diktatur, mistænkt for at være kommunister, hvilket de med åbenlys stolthed også var - og stadig er! Siden har de to kvinder boet sammen i over 50 år i et lille, hjemmelavet hus, og delt deres lange liv med hinanden i et nært og tæt forhold. Tingene ændrer sig først, da Kusdalini kommer på hospitalet. ‘You and I’ er en film, der synes at rumme alt i sin umiddelbare enkelhed. Venskabet, kærligheden, det politiske engagement, livet selv. Der er ikke skruet op for effekterne i Fanny Chotimahs smukke og dybt rørende debutfilm, for det behøver hun slet ikke. Følelserne er rene og stærke, og man skal være lavet af sten for ikke at blive dybt rørt af Kaminah og Kusdalinis hengivenhed til hinanden - eller for ikke at blive revet med af deres revolutionære paroler, for den sags skyld.

An unusual, lifelong relationship between two ageing women is nearing its end in a simple, beautiful and deeply moving Indonesian debut.

70-year-old Kaminah and 74-year-old Kusdalini have known each other since they met in prison at a very young age during the Indonesian dictatorship, suspected of being communists, which they obvious and proudly were - and still are! Since then, the two women have lived together for over 50 years in a small, self-made house and shared their long lives in a close and intimate relationship. Things only change when Kusdalini is taken to hospital. ‘You and I’ is a film that seemingly contains everything in its immediate simplicity: friendship, love, political commitment, life itself. There is no need for grand effects in Fanny Chotimah’s beautiful and profoundly moving debut. The emotions are pure and strong, and you must be made of stone not to be deeply moved by Kaminah and Kusdalini’s devotion to each other - or not to be carried away by their revolutionary slogans, for that matter.
