Film description

Alf gets up before dawn every day. At a market he fills his truck with fresh fish and then he sells them at his own shop which allows him to earn a good life for himself and his beloved Lena. One day Hannes, Lena's ex-boyfriend, leaves the jail where he was incarcerated after he had beaten her brutally. Lena's long-subdued fears come out again and a casual meeting with her former oppressor reminds her of the obsessive attachment to love which is illogical, which destroys people, both psychologically and physically. Research has confirmed that women who have been abused are facing a lot of prejudice - Åke Sandgren says. Lena's character is quite obviously dependent on Hannes. This can be hard to understand for friends and family, but she wants his love at all costs. You could say that we are witnessing a form of addiction. We might think that Lena is following her heart and that she is making a choice - but are we witnessing love, or addictive behaviour?

Agata Bratek
