Director Jan Troell; Release date: 17 April
Maria Larsson (Maria Heiskanen) is the mother of seven and wife of an abusive drunk, Sigge (Mikael Persbrandt). He beats her and their children whenever he's had a drink too many, which is quite often.
Maria makes a living mending gentry folk's clothes and washing their floors. Sigge takes on work wherever he can find it. It's at the beginning of the 20th century and life in the Larsson family's tiny apartment in Malmöaut;, Sweden, is hard and bleak, something even the brownish-sepia coloured shots of Everlasting Moments capture spot on.
