ONCE A YEAR Feature Film
Nominated for Guldbagge Swedish Film Academy
Maria (Gunilla Röör) and Mikael (Michalis Koutsogiannakis) are both married in different places but meet once a year in different hotel rooms, something they have done for 30 years. Within the protective walls of the hotels, they live as if in their own mini-universe where reality is kept out and the premise has always been simple - passion without demands. But this year, something has changed, ordinary everyday life seeps in and the relationship is suddenly put to the test. When they allow themselves to feel, the step is not far to hurt and disappoint.
