Stockholm My Love

Synopsis: Stockholm My Love is a city symphony, a love letter to Stockholm, the fiction debut of director Mark Cousins and the acting debut of musician Neneh Cherry. It follows one woman's footsteps through the streets of her native city, on a journey of recovery from a bad thing that happened to her exactly one year before. It's an exploration of grief, identity and the power of architecture and urbanism to shape lives, and a celebration of the power of walking and looking to make us all feel just a little bit better. With new music by Neneh Cherry, old music by Benny Andersson (of ABBA) and Franz Berwald, and images by Christopher Doyle and Mark Cousins.

Or the music of Berwald?

Did you like this darkness?

Can you answer me?

Would you answer me?

Maybe this kind of medieval building

is better at sadness, despair-

-than all our clean lined,

democratic ones?

There is another place, Gunnar.

Can we go there?

Engelbrekt church.

Built in the 1910s, when your parents

would have been born, Gunnar.

Maybe they came here.

Were you ever inside here, Gunnar?

Why am I today?

Not for God.

For a shareable story?

To be with others, but alone?

To soar?

To hide I think.

Its massive walls

make me feel safe.

I'm here to feel like a foreigner.

Who can forgive me?

Can you?

Do I need to be forgiven?

I wasn't in the wrong.

The police said so.

Gunnar, there's somewhere

I've been meaning to go.

A place of death and beauty.

Maybe today I can.

Asplund's and Lewerentz's

Woodland Cemetery.

They wanted something new

for the oldest thing in the world.

Lewerentz's St Mark's was so rough,

so grey.

But here's his chapel.

Tall portico between tall trees.

He and Asplund had it laid out

to emphasise the tallness, Gunnar.

I love this tallness.

Did the day have an orange in its mouth?

Did the birds fall from the trees?

Were rooms still rooms this morning?

Were things still three?

Would I have noticed either way?

In my days that were not days?

When I'd come too old to play?

When life was not a cabaret?

The sun today makes me think of Italy.

I walk, Gunnar.

Towards you.

I fall to my knees.

I've wanted to go inside.

Climb with me.

It's locked.

Maybe that's good.

Is there light in my eyes, Gunnar?

I've not lost my mask yet, have I?

Maybe I can peep in.

See what lies ahead.


It gives me vertigo.

Shame vertigo.

I'm ashamed of those 15 seconds, Gunnar.

I will be all my life.

God, Gunnar.
