The Birth Of Love Film Poster


The Birth of Love studies two friends, who seem only vaguely aware that their time has past. Paunchy, stringy-haired Paul, a minor stage actor, carries on a succession of affairs with younger women while ignoring his pregnant wife Ulrika. Marcus, whose girlfriend Hélène has just left him, is an aging journalist who still dreams of writing an earthshaking book. Hélène and Ulrika, who in spite of their discontent, are one step ahead of the men with their acceptance of what life has brought them. What follows is a search to return to the purity of their cherished ideals – a longing to overcome the complacency of aging and familiar comfort in order to recapture their passion. –
