PlotIn "Maria Larsson’s Everlasting Moments", director Jan Troell gets to combine his greatest passions: pictures and the early 1900s. Maria Heiskanen ("Il Capitano") plays a young working woman and mother of seven children who wins a camera in a lottery and starts to lead a double life, unbeknownst to her husband (Mikael Persbrandt), a hard-working, hard-drinking ladies’ man. The Danish actor
Jesper Christensen (who recently thrilled audiences as the villain in the James Bond film "Casino Royale") plays a photographer, Sebastian "Piff Paff Puff" Pedersen, who teaches Mrs. Larsson to see the world through the camera lens.
