Their love-making, like their marital squabbles, takes on its all-too-familiar pattern. So they look carefully around them, each of them hoping for a new chance. There is even mention of divorce, and the death of Katarina’s mother could represent the crossroads on their shared journey. But the couple can’t live contentedly with or without each other....
