  • Director's Statement:
    Friends around me started to separate. The way they told about their crucial moments was like they were looking at a photo, in so precise way they had it in mind, all colours and sounds. I was moved by these moments when we give up the control, give up of playing all the games that exist in marriage. Main characters in Every Other Couple are adults, parents, but my perspective is also in the children. They are the ones who just have to accept and adapt.
