Director’s Statement

Songs about love is a film about power, ambition and love. It is guided by the idea that rebellion against parental authority can legitimise that authority; the stronger the rebellion, the longer it reigns. The road to independence is different – winding through an understanding that defining oneself in spite of another is still to act under their influence. To rid oneself of it takes knowing and accepting oneself. Robert’s story takes this road – his love for Alicja and for their shared musical future serves his struggle against his father, although he is unable to understand this in time.
