Filmmaker Johannes and his wife, schoolteacher Signe, experience the biggest sorrow and misfortune one can ever imagine. Nevertheless, in all the hopelessness they must try to reach for mutual and mature love in order to continue life after death. Director Nils Malmros is one of Danish films most significant personalities and during the last forty years his characters have always had a strong autobiographical element. Being his most personal film to date, SORROW AND JOY is no exception.
“My own adolescence has formed the basis of my films describing the loss of innocence and coming of age. They circle around unrequited and unhappy love. With my new film I want to tell a story of how to reach a mutual and mature love through immense sorrow and joy. It may sound grand, but I certainly feel that my words are justified.” (Nils Malmros)
