Thoughtful and provocative drama about Europe's current sociopolitical crisis told through the allegory of a crumbling and twisted marriage.
The narrative of Marriage is not simple. But there's nothing simple about Europe either.
Europe, the wife, trapped in a boom and bust relationship with her young and immature husband Rich, feels lost and disconnected from reality. Unable to deal with his sexual demands and the tragedy that has occurred because of his misconduct, Europe embarks on an unusual journey to find herself. On her way she’ll meet the people that have haunted her marriage and affected her life: Rich’s decadent mother, his corrupted friends, his innocent victims and most importantly his domineering lover Adam - a man who seems to dictate the fate of many, including hers.
The film’s original narrative unfolds across two threads: the reality, which takes place inside their apartment - an apartment which represents our world - and the fantasy, which takes place in her mind and in beautiful, challenging exteriors. In the latter, she is allowed to be free, discover her limits and gain the strength to face reality and decide her future.
