"To love someone" is a dark movie about a modern and important subject, women who are beaten by there partners. But this movie dares to enlighten the difficult questions why some womens seems to be drawn into destructive relationships and instead of choosing a way out rather walks right in to the obvious danger. To love someone, is a movie about self destructive behavior and it will make you wanna rip of your hair and scream.
After a stormy relationship Lena finds a new life in her new husband Alf. Her old boyfriend Hannes who is serving jail time for long time abuse to Lena is sent free from jail and against all common sense a new relationship begins.
The director Ake Sandgren dares to provoke and take the movie in to the dark sides of human behavior. The movie works well tanks to the writer Kim Aakessons wonderful book and the actors Sofia Ledarp (Lena) and Jonas Karlsson (Hannes) and Rolf Lassgards (Alf) impressive acting.
To love someone, shows that love isn't logical at all and contains decisions that will effect your life for ever. You become the sum total of all the decisions you ever make in your life, no matter if it was a very bad one.
