Stockholm My Love, the first fiction feature by acclaimed documentarian Mark Cousins, and starring Swedish-born singer Neneh Cherry in her movie debut, will be released in the UK by BFI.
The film received its World premiere at the 2016 BFI London Film Festival. The BFI will release it in summer 2017.
Directed by Mark Cousins, and written by Mark Cousins and Anita Oxburgh, Stockholm My Love is a city symphony and a love letter to the Swedish capital. It is the story of one woman’s journey towards recovery from a bad thing, as she wanders the streets of her native city exactly one year after a traumatic event. It’s a musical and visual celebration of urbanism, cityscapes, and the power of walking and looking to make us feel just a little bit better.
The cinematographer is the legendary Christopher Doyle (In the Mood for Love, Hero and Mark Cousins’ previous film I Am Belfast).
The soundtrack features five new pieces of music by Neneh Cherry, written specially for the film with her husband Cameron McVey, RocketNumberNine’s Benjamin Page and Mark Cousins, along with music from Benny Andersson (of ABBA) and 19th century Swedish composer Franz Berwald.
