Love is more than just an overwhelming rush of emotions but is an act of the will, accompanied by emotion that leads to action on behalf of its object. We spend so much time trying to find the perfect match for ourselves only to be left disappointed again and again. How can you love someone unconditionally if they meet all the conditions? Marriage is a gift not for the perfect, but to grow us towards perfection. But just as everything else here on earth - it's temporal.
I wanted to tell a story based around the idea of "oneness", how a husband and his wife come together and become one. And to show no matter what happens or what they go through, they still choose to come back to each other and be faithful to each other.
I wanted to film this as if I was making a documentary instead of a narrative, so for certain scenes, I let the actors get carried away with the scenes, and I just act as a fly on the wall.
I wanted the film to take place mostly in the bedroom because a bedroom is a place of vulnerability and intimacy, and in a deeper sense for a married couple, a place where they can be naked and unashamed.
