A Married Couple

Emil Langballe, Denmark, 2019

87 min.TV documentary

Sidsel and Christian are in their twenties and live together on a family farm. They have known each other for ten years, been together for six, and now they are finally getting married. This has been Sidsel's dream ever since she met Christian, because she is quite romantic and consistently calls Christian "my prince". At the same time, she feels that getting married is necessary to keep the magic and to "feel something inside". Sidsel and Christian have a unique and straightforward approach to love. They both have Down's syndrome, and they relate to the world and to each other with complete honesty and no filter, often looking at things from a surprisingly poetic and unusual viewpoint and with a philosophical take on life.
