Everlasting Moments – Movie Review
Sweden, early 1900s. In a time of social change and unrest, war and poverty, a young working class woman, Maria, wins a camera in a lottery. The decision to keep it alters her whole life. The camera grants Maria new eyes with which to see the world, and brings the charming photographer “Piff Paff Puff” into her life. Trouble ensues when Maria’s alcoholic, womanizing husband, feels threatened by the young man and his wife’s newfound outlook on life.
“Ever Lasting Moments” is a lovely movie about a seemingly dowdy Swedish house wife who discovers life through a lens and the effect it has on her life, on her children, on her husband, and upon the photographer who loves her from afar. This is one of those lovely movies that will sneak up and steal your heart. Four stars.
