Sweden 2008, 131 minutes, drama
Director: Jan Troell
Swedish with subtitles

Sweden, early 1900s – an era of social change and unrest, war and poverty. A young working-class housewife wins a camera in a lottery. The camera allows Maria to use her inspired gift of seeing to capture the “everlasting moments” of the title, and empowers her over the years to raise and nurture six children despite her alcoholic, womanizing and sometimes violent husband. The passion of the main character for making images is clearly the director’s own. Portrayed with delicacy and feeling, without sanctimony or sentimentality, this is a memorable salute to a remarkable life.

Starring: Maria Heiskanen, Mikael Persbrandt, Jesper Christensen
