AuteurTheory’s review published on Letterboxd:
I randomly picked up the LOVING COUPLES DVD just because I’m always on the lookout for foreign/obscure/weird movies, and I had never heard of this one. It comes with this award winning short film, which has the quality filmmaking of a feature. Suspense and intrigue is created with practically nothing.
I had no idea that director Mai Zetterling was a woman when I put this on. They always talk about how there weren’t any female directors back then, yet I always seem to stumble upon another artist that indeed were working and making their own movies. It’s just that no one ever talks about them.
