Die Nacht der Nächte Poster
Together. For a lifetime. Who can manage this? And who still wants this? What seems to be an oddity for us nowadays was the norm for the generation of our grandparents. This generation still experienced it – a traditional wedding night.

 

Likely the most charming documentary at Hot Docs 2018.   Together for a lifetime?  Who can manage this?  And who still wants this? What seems to be an oddity for people these days was the norm for the generation of our grandparents.  The doc follows four separate lifelong couples from different countries as they experience and talk about their traditional wedding night.  The couples are elderly couples from Japan, Germany and India including a gay couple from Pennsylvania in the United States.  The film is shot in Japanese, Hindi and German with English subtitles  and in English.   This is a simple documentary not requiring much research. What it lacks in terms of content and history is compensated by the amusing observations on human behaviour.  Of all the couples on display, the Indian one is the most endearing.  The segment where the husband and wife describe their first ‘touching’ encounter in a cinema is unforgettable and in itself is worth the price of admission.
