Once every 30 years
10 June 2013 | by stenssonSee all my reviews

This couple has a pact. They only meet for love-making once every year. Not totally without conflicts, but anyway without giving up the pact. Until it after 30 years, which also means 30 days, becomes serious.

Good acting, hardly any yelling, and only two persons on the screen. Mostly their feelings are explainable, understandable, even for those who are outside all kinds of pacts.

You can of course say that this is a little too grown-up, which makes it not concerning you. But passion in a low voice sometimes do anyway. Even if only takes place once a year. Or once every 30 years. More to come?
