山は動かないけれど人は動く。海の向こうであっても地球の反対側であっても、意志が人をそこへ向かわせる。何が待っているか知れない怖さがあっても、どうにかなると信じて。

このフィルムは、愛する人と暮らすために、ブラジル、スリランカ、カリフォルニアからスウェーデンへうつった3人の外国人とそのスウェーデン人パートナー達を数か月追ったドキュメンタリー。愛する人を拠点に少しずつ自分の居場所を広げていくガイコクジン達と、それを見守るパートナーの様子は、甘くも時にほろ苦い。

分かりやすいスウェーデン語なので、スウェーデン語を勉強している人にもおすすめ。SVT PLAYで2019年3月12日まで見られます。

The film follows three couples of Swedish and non-Swedish which decide to live together in Sweden. Adelia from Brazil, Rasika from Sri Lanka, and Chelsea from California move to Sweden for the first time in their life for their beloved partners. In the beginning, they are happy to meet their partners and to experience new culture. Even snow on the road or silent people on a bus make them impressed. But after a while they get frustrated and lonely by not having friends, a job, and not knowing the language which make them out from the community.  They cannot live as free as they did home. Their Swedish partners support them, which sometimes work but not always. It takes time when it comes to learn a language, make close friends or find a job. During the film shooting, some relationships get strengthened and some end. It is a heartwarming, sad, yet encouraging story of people moving to Sweden for love.
