WILLEM VAN DE SANDE BAKHUYZEN — IDTV FILM — 2005
Live! is a film about obstetrician Anna and her family. They have everything they could wish for, but what dominates is a feeling that life just ‘passes by’ – with the result that Anna, her husband and their two daughters live alongside each other instead of ‘together’. Live! is a multi-layered drama about modern people with modern relationships. Anna would sacrifice everything for her husband, children and mother but deep in her heart she wants to become a writer. However, to become a writer it’s told that you must have your life in order. And that is not the case with Anna: her marriage hangs on a thread, the youngest daughter no longer is depressed, her eldest daughter has heart problems and Anna’s mother is a disabled person who has raised complaining to a profession. Yet Anna knows how to give it all a positive spin.
