Brazen, timely and heart-wrenching, Two Mothers is an intense exploration of the trials and tribulations a same sex couple encounters in their desire to become loving parents. Katja and Isabella are happily married and feel the time is right to have a child. As the weeks and months pass by, it becomes clear that the process will be far more fraught than either were prepared for- and even threaten their relationship in unexpected ways. Brilliantly honest and surprisingly stirring, Two Mothers is unmissable drama.

This film explores the complexity of the emotions and practicalities of lesbians seeking motherhood. It is well thought through and tackles the pain, frustration and hope of both women. It is thought provoking and something to watch if you want more depth to your viewing

This film takes a realistic and almost forensic look at the trials and tribulations of a lesbian couple, Katja and Isabella, who decide that a child should complete the family. However, the film depicted more trials than tribulations when they find it difficult to get artificial insemination which, when it does happen, does not achieve the desired result - a child for Isabella.

They have a long-term and close relationship so the basis of family life is established ; unfortunately, the unsuccessful inseminations put pressure on them, especially as Isabella becomes more obsessed with wanting to conceive. She neglected her chores : as Katja reminds her 'It's all baby,baby,baby!' . Isabella finds a sperm donor who has fathered twenty children and she spends a great deal of money with him. We hope that the outcome will be a long-delayed success.

The ending of the film,admittedly rather truncated, was very emotional as Katya helped Isabella with the syringe. It is at that point that their previous physical intimacy returns. It was a pity that the film did not develop their relationship further but the ending did suggest that again Katya would be marginalized as Isabella searched for baby equipment. However, in spite of all this, there may be a ray of hope for them both.

The detail in the film is intimate with minimal dialogue. The subject matter should not be uncomfortable for adults in the modern world, most of whom would be rooting for Isabella and Katya. The question may be asked though as to whether one could sacrifice everything to achieve one's desire. The film poses this question and gave its audience a riveting, thought-provoking piece.

Thoughtful, intense drama exploring the difficulties experienced by a married female couple who decide to try to conceive ; the difficulities they experience and prejudices they come up against...Truncated to allow ... what?

LoveFilm blurb promises an "intense exploration" of lesbian couple trying to conceive. Something based on real experience.
Just as it reaches a climax (excuse the pun) it stops!!!! Viewer is left with probably only one conclusion - an unhappy ending?
The film is only 75 minutes and there is at least 20 minutes more story somewhere.

As others have said feels like some of the film is missing as ends very abruptly. Aside from that I found it slow paced and dare I say a little boring
