Song for Martin, A


Sweden 2001, 117 minutes
Dir. Bille August
In Swedish with English subtitles
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama / Classical Music

Topics: Mental Health.


Aroview: Touching drama of a composer and concertmaster who fall in love through classical music, only to battle the effects of Alzheimer's.

Foreseeable ending aside, the subject matter, which focuses on memory and loss, is given heart-rending poignancy through distilled performance and storytelling. The fact that partners Wollter and Seldahl were married in real-life, and that Seldahl died shortly after the film’s release, only serves to heighten the film’s profound sadness.
