The Swedish Theory of Love

.
Erik Gandini / 2016

The stereotype defines Sweden as a perfect society with a very high quality of life. But is it really a happy country? Is it possible that the most self-sufficient and independent people in the world are unsatisfied? Without the need to ask for help or favours, human contact is reduced to the minimum. The number of people who die alone is growing year after year. Is it worth assuming isolation and loneliness in order to have a self-sufficient, independent life? Iconoclastic filmmaker Erik Gandini explores the Swedish way of life with a sense of humour, considering how a secure and easy life can turn into an empty and lonely existence.

  • With great rhythm and without losing the audience along the way, Gandini shows us the other, darker side of progress, riches and independence.
