produced by Lars Westman/SVT
Format

Summary
For more than twenty years, Lars Westman has been filming his mother. The result is a unique record of life s inevitable passage, as well as a tender portrait of an aging mother who lived to a ripe old age in her own home, until complications from a hip injury necessitated her move to a nursing home. When she succumbed to her final illness, her son was at her bedside to record her last breath. Their strong affection helps the film transcend grim reality.
