Following her Oscar-nominated short film The Danish Poet (Generation 2006), the Canadian-Norwegian film maker Torill Kove makes her return to Generation with this light, playful and tender take on human relationships. As time flies by, the relationship between a mother and her daughter is transformed – yet it remains somehow the same. Holding tight and letting go, strengthening and loosening the invisible bonds of love and trust.
