Plot: Marianne and Johan have been married for ten years. He is a college professor, she a divorce lawyer. They say that they are happily married but there is a certain detached aloofness in the way they treat each other. In the next ten years, as they contemplate or embark upon divorce or known extramarital affairs, they come to differing understandings at each phase of their relationship of what they truly mean to each other. Regardless of if it’s love or hate, they also come to certain understandings of how they can best relate to each other, whether that be as husband and wife, friends, lovers or none of the above.
