ARE WE LOST FOREVER
Three years of a passionate relationship are cast away when Adrian and Hampus decide they no longer wish to share a house, a bed or a life. What happens when two people decide to take different routes while their lives continue to orbit around the love and passion that brought them together in the first place? The answers are found in this disarmingly candid debut which adroitly keeps the audience guessing how the initially recognisable love story will turn out.

An overwhelming percentage of relationship films end at the beginning of a new one. David Färdmar‘s debut starts at the end, setting a rather ambitious goal: not only to observe the stages of coldness, rage, pain and love of a gay version of ‘Marriage Story’ but to describe the mechanism of the parting. Impressively, it will also portray the psyche of the person unconsciously contributing to the separation.
The Gothenburg environment shows cleverly the mingling of Swedish society, the desire of child-bearing, the comfort of a lived social acceptance but also the inevitable (?) mire in the 'civilized' bourgeoisie. A great performance by Björn Elgerd, in the role of Andrian. I.D.
