Stockholm, My Love

Mark Cousins and Neneh Cherry team up for this superb film, which walks the line between documentary and fiction and premiered at last year's BFI London Film Festival. Under the steely skies of Stockholm, Cherry's Alva struggles with debilitating depression from a trauma a year earlier. Bunking off work, she takes us through the city, exploring buildings, bridges, and a cinema, each place revealing more about her state of mind. Touching on the immigrant experience, her relationship with her father, and Stockholm's history, Alva's story slowly works towards the tragedy, which is devastatingly revealed. Exquisitely photographed by Christopher Doyle (In the Mood for Love), this is a visceral, music- and poetry-filled exploration of grief, but one that also examines the glorious moments when Alva emerges from that state.
