THE YELLOW SULFUR SKY
The Yellow Sulfur Sky is a bittersweet film about love, but not a love story in the traditional sense. The film is based on the novel by Kjell Westö.
The film is a story about love and friendship, class distinction and our times. The main character of the film, the author Frej, is both lover and friend, eyewitness and foe – all rolled into one. In the upper class girl Stella Rabell, Frej finds a true soulmate, and their relationship lasts for decades, even if they won’t live together or make love. The story moves intensely from love to jealousy, from life to death.
This is a film about how memory works: stormy love, family ties and generations, sexes and social classes that collide. Is memory deceptive, can we count on it, or is each memory actually a dream?
