NO TEARS

by Håkan Bjerking

synopsis

Magnus is a photographer, specialising in family portraits. But there is no photo of his own family, so he decides to create a collage for his mother’s 75th birthday. Time is of the essence, for his father is dying. In his search for old photos, Magnus meets with considerable resistance from his siblings and his embittered mother. All of them fear that he will open old wounds. Magnus himself is tormented by memories of his childhood and his father’s unpredictable cruelty.
