Allowed 91 minutes 2015 7.1

It's only a week left to the 45th wedding anniversary of Kate and Geoff Mercers and the planning for the party is in full swing. But then Geoff gets a letter. They have found the body of his first love, frozen and well-preserved deep in the glaciers of the Swiss Alps. The news causes Kate to question their lives together and the question is whether there is a marriage left to celebrate when it's time for the party. "The performance is purely dazzling. With little resources, Andrew High succeeds in creating a soft but under the surface brutal and bitter marriage drama that can measure itself with the work of European champions as Fassbinder and Todd Haynes", writes Maria Domellöf-Wik in GP and rates it 5 out of 5. The main role holders were awarded the Silver Bear for Best Female and Best Male Lead Role at the Berlin Film Festival. Charlotte Rampling was also nominated for an Oscar for Best Female Acting.
