In Stockholm My Love, Mark Cousins captures the city’s urbanism, cinematic vistas, changing weather and luminosity, the poetics of the place, its social history, complexity and dreamscape throught the life of the fictional Alva Achebe (Neneh Cherry). A Swedish architect in her late 40s, Alva is haunted by tragedy, walking the streets, playing truant from her life, trying to get lost. But her steps just lead her back to the very thing she’s trying to forget. Cousins, Cherry and cinematographer Christopher Doyle (In the Mood for Love and Cousins’ own I Am Belfast) create a visceral, music and poetry-filled exploration of grief, but one that also examines the glorious moments when Alva emerges from that state.
