Under tio år följer Janus Metz och Sine Plambech några av de 900 thailändska kvinnor som flyttat till Thy i norra Jylland för att gifta sig.

Den danskthailändska kvinnan Sommai har bott i Danmark i 25 år, sedan hon träffade danske Niels som prostituerad i Pattaya. Hon använder nu sitt vinnande sätt och sina breda kontaktytor för att etablera relationer mellan danska män och thailändska kvinnor. Med Sommai som centralpunkt skildrar regissören Janus Metz (Borg, Armadillo) och migrationsforskaren Sine Plambech, själva ett gift par, en rad thailändska kvinnors liv både i Thailand och i Danmark. Heartbound är en fascinerande film som ställer komplexa och utmanande frågor om kärlekens villkor i det globaliserade samhället.

Regissörer

Janus Metz (b. 1974) has directed a number of prize-winning and internationally acclaimed documentaries – among others [Armadillo] (2010), which was awarded the Grand Prix, Semaine de la Critique at the Cannes Film Festival; an Emmy; a Grierson award and a nomination at the European Film Awards. [Armadillo] was released theatrically in 18 countries and was the number one box-office hit for three consecutive weeks in Denmark.

Sine Plambech was born in Denmark, and is a senior researcher and anthropologist at the Danish Institute for International Studies. She has co-directed the documentaries [Love on Delivery] (2007), [Ticket to Paradise] (2008), and [Trafficking] (2010). [Heartbound] (2018) is her latest film.

What fascinates me about the families in this series is that within the intimacy of the small arena of marriage they tell a story of globalisation. They come together across global divides with very different needs. Inevitably this means the occasional clash, but now and then they arrive at a mutual approach and mutual understanding. Starvation can kill us; but so can loneliness, and it is in the no-man’s-land between family finances and solicitude that our characters do their deals with one another. I filmed them at ten-year intervals. This facilitated a longitudinal study of the way two locations on opposite sides of the globe – a village community in Thailand and a deprived rural area in Denmark, intimately connected by marital migration and sex tourism – affect each other and grow together, and how the lives I have come to know so intimately over the years take shape. Ethics, happiness, willpower and needs depend on the eye of the beholder, and to me this series is an investigation into man’s existence in the face of the divine, nature, and society. I have tried to be anthropological and to observe this spectacle without prejudice.
