65 years of marriage summed up through discussions about wallpaper

Hans and Kerstin have been married for 65 years. One day Hans decides to put up wallpaper on one of the walls of their summer house, even though Kerstin hates the idea. Through their discussions, conversations and fights about wallpaper, we get a portrait of their history and life together. We also get a glimpse of a part of Sweden which is slowly fading away.

With PARADISE, veteran filmmaker Jerzy Sladkowski has made a humorous and romantic documentary.
