This Week’s Guest Short: “A Couple” by Julie Budtz Sørensen and Sidsel Baggesgaard Seeberg
Denmark, 2010, 9.07 min
Synopsis: IBEN (35) lives alone in her house in the countryside, where she makes a living from tending to her botanical garden. She is lonely and has not recovered from her break up with her great love, WILLIAM (40), who used to live in the house with Iben. After the break up, Iben and William have not been able to let each other go, and at intervals, William returns to Iben’s home, where he sets up a tent in her garden. When Iben sees the reflection of herself and William in an old photograph of the two when they were together, she realizes that what they have now is unrelated to the relationship they had then; that which had value is lost and only an empty shell remains…
