Sorrow and Joy

(Sorg og glæde)

Sorrow and Joy presents filmmaker Johannes and his wife Marianne in a series of flashbacks that lay out the intricacies of events leading up to and following the death of their infant daughter and the eventual institutionalisation of Marianne.

A deeply personal auto-biopic, Malmros confronts the limits of human laws and the infinite possibilities of love conquering all.
