Gay saunas have their specific rules, which might be summed up as “what happens in the sauna, stays in the sauna”. And that’s what married couple Ivar and Pål are hoping as they set off with the aim of adding some zest to the partner stereotype. A film about love and about the kind of excesses one should only treat oneself to once in a while.


Synopsis

Sweden, 1981. Married couple Ivar and Pål set out for a gay sauna hoping to try out something new and add some zest to the partner stereotype. They head for an establishment that operates by the motto: “What happens in the sauna, stays in the sauna”. They both hope they’ll leave the place just as besotted with each other as they were when they arrived. 1981 is a film which blends explicit eroticism with fragile love in a tale of everyday life and the kind of excesses one should only treat oneself to once in a while.

Anna Purkrábková
