Over the course of one lovely summer afternoon in Denmark, lives are irrevocably changed. A Matter of Trust features five unrelated stories about different relationships: On a repatriation flight from Denmark to Afghanistan, a doctor finds her commitment to the Hippocratic oath tested by a violent immigration system. After being cruelly outed to his whole school, a young student seeks comfort in the company of his English teacher. At a funeral, a pregnant newlywed questions her husband’s mysterious past. In an AirBnb owned by a conservative eavesdropper, two married strangers begin an affair. And on a beach day that proves to be much more, the bond between mother and daughter is tested. Each of these five tales delves into differing aspects of care, deception, and love that come together to form a tender, true and spellbinding portrait of trust in modern relationships. (Dir. by Annette K. Olesen, 2022, Denmark, in Danish with English subtitles, 105 mins., Not Rated)
