Tillsammans

Sweden, Denmark, Italy

Synopsis

Elisabeth tires of her husband, so she packs her bags, takes her children and goes off to her brother, Goran. The year is 1975. Elisabeth is a fairly ordinary housewife from the suburbs, but Goran is a little different. He lives in a commune and that's where Elisabeth arrives with her children - to a chaotic house inhabited with long-haired people who discuss politics, have free sex, grow vegetables and drink lots of red wine. The collision of these two separate worlds sets off a drama that will change all their lives.

"Together" is a film about people trying to live together. Sometimes it works well, sometimes it doesn't. It's about love and divorce and family happiness and family unhappiness and about children and adults and friendship and sex and football.
