Familiarity meets politics in this portrayal of life in Kosovo after the war. The story revolves around Bekim and Anita who are planning their wedding. Bekim is a bar owner and one evening his old friend Nol shows up. Nol’s return home brings a number of old conflicts and secrets to the surface. We are also confronted with them in flashbacks that further highlights this complicated story. The past and present interrupts the wedding plans, and change the relationship between Bekim and Anita. The story twists and turns its way to the wedding which adds to the disagreements. The Marriage is greatly executed and unpredictable. The director Blerta Zeqiri enjoyed great success with her last film The Return, and her new film is regarded as one of the most interesting European productions.
