Stockholm My Love is a city symphony, a love letter to Stockholm, the fiction debut of director Mark Cousins and the acting debut of musician Neneh Cherry. It follows one woman's footsteps through the streets of her native city, on a journey of recovery from a bad thing that happened to her exactly one year before. It's an exploration of grief, identity and the power of architecture and urbanism to shape lives, and a celebration of the power of walking and looking to make us all feel just a little bit better. With new music by Neneh Cherry, old music by Benny Andersson (of ABBA) and Franz Berwald, and images by Christopher Doyle and Mark Cousins.
Finally! a 100% cure for insomnia. Commentary states Sweden is one of the happiest countries in the world - you certainly would not get that impression from this melancholic, downbeat, tedious, navel-gazing film consisting of a series of gloomy views of Stockholm in winter. If you make to the end credits, you may need to call the Samaritans, or celebrate your masochism..
