Our bodies age. Love does not. Perhaps we get wiser over the years but you can not stop the force of love. Afternoon Encounter is an adaptation of Henning Mankell’s original screenplay.
An old lady encounters her husband since half a century, to demand for a legal divorce. Even though they have not been living together for 23 or 24 years, which they disagree with, she wants to be free when she dies. But when they meet memories and secrets are revealed. They both feel lonely and deserted.
