Forever
Damjan Kozole

Synopsis

Tanya is 35, with a successful career. Her husband Mare is an architect. One Friday, Tanya comes home late at night. Mare confronts her and they exchange some edgy words; Mare is clearly jealous, he loses control of himself and slaps her in the face. Obviously, it is not the first such incident.
Tanya locks herself in the bathroom. They continue their conversation over the locked doors. Mare calms down, but when Tanya comes from the bathroom, he becomes abusive again. The noise wakes up a neighbour who reports them to the police. The police arrive and the couple calms down. When policemen leave the couple resorts to psychological abuse. What follows is the night of hateful and skilful twisting of words that unveils, step by step, all the dark secrets of their relationship. Behind a façade of a successful couple, there are suppressed feelings of inferiority, weaknesses, deceit, frustration and traumas from their youth.

director's statement

The original Slovenian title »Za vedno« is a pun, meaning either Forever or Aware. What goes on behind locked doors of people's apartments? How do seemingly perfectly normal couples, people like you and I and our friends really function? Film speaks about psychological violence, about mental abuse that we frequently tolerate in our relationships, failing to recognize it as real violence that undermines interpersonal relations. A film that will make the viewers aware of the subliminal components of their personalities.
