Summary
This is sensitive portrait of men who had each lost a dearly loved wife at an early age, through illness or sudden act of fate. We learn how they fare bringing up their children, housekeeping, dealing with their emotions, and sometimes, finding new love. The filmmaker's mother had died when he was young, and his father had never been able to speak of their loss. It was this silence that ultimately propelled him to make the film and explore the effect of loss on young families. During the course of filming, father and son grew to understand each other. The filmmaker is entrusted with his parents' precious wedding album. Rarely does one see on camera the unambivalent love these men felt for their wives, which makes loss particularly poignant. An impressive film on male psychology as well as grief studies
