Maud and Leo
Maud & Leo is a poetic roadmovie set in the very north of Sweden. Its a cinematic voyage through the visually stunning landscapes of Norrland.
The movie starts when Maud, 58, travels to the mountain Galtis to take her life. By chance she accidently witnesses a man committing suicide. The situationen is an eye opener for Maud. She decides that she wants to live and to fullfill his last will – to drive his Alfa Romeo Spider -73 to his son.
During her trip she meets Leo, a 22 year old hipster. Leo has just had a fight with his band and has been thrown off the tour bus when he hitches a ride with Maud.
Through the movie we follow how Maud and Leo stop by lakes and mountains, how they talk and how they listen to the northern silence. And how they fight each other.
Maud & Leo is a suggestive roadmovie and an enigmatic inner drama of two people of two different ages which meet, talk and fight. And slowly are force to open up to one another.
