'Per Sempre(o no)' considers the current state of love, family and relationships in Catalonia. The episodes follow a certain chronological order based on the evolution of the relationships in each period of life, although the interviews cover very many different cases and ages in all episodes. Most current hot issues are dealt with, from casual flirting to new trends in single parenthood.
Somehow, though, the portrait that emerges is too sanitized, with the uglier aspects in the wide-ranging experience of love hidden under the carpet (in particular couple-related abuse, but also other matters such as rejection, infidelities, homophobia, etc.). Whenever serious problems are mentioned, this is always from the positive point of view of people who have overcome them. Also, family is always considered from the angle of the parents, with the children being given no voice, which seems odd.
At any rate, a very interesting contribution to the debates around the complicated reality of love, family and relationships today, far less local than it might seem.
