Netflix has just released the official trailer of its latest show ‘My Love: Six Stories of True Love’ – a documentary series that has an interesting concept. The series is basically a tale about six elderly couples who’ve stood against the test of time and managed to survive despite how serious the obstacles got.
The show is essentially an expansion of an award-winning documentary ‘My Love, Don’t Cross That River’ which was directed by Jin Mo-Young – the last 15 months spent by a couple who were in a 76-year old marriage.
In the trailer, we can see couples having intimate moments with each other and talking about their secret to a long-lasting marriage. The diversity is clearly evident and seems to be emphasized in the trailer. Every episode will supposedly tackle relationships between people from different backgrounds. Hence, you’ll find couples that are disabled or from different sexual orientation, etc.
What is the main idea of the show? What have we managed to take away from the brief trailer? Well, it clearly seems like the show is all set to explore how love persists and adds happiness and satisfaction to human life. It doesn’t matter who you love, your relationship will endure all the pain and sorrow if the foundation is strong.
The show truly gives you perspective on love and how beautiful human relationships are – they add so much meaning to your life. It doesn’t matter where you are born and who you are; if you’re true to your relationships, you’re true to yourself.
Interestingly, every episode of the series is filmed by a different director – the show follows the same premise. Hence, you’ll come across one couple which is registering their life and relationship. The unique blend of directors truly makes the show special because they all come from a different background and add something new to the table.
This creates opportunity for the viewers, as they get to see the concept of love as universal. It’s viewed as a human experience that surpasses and fights all kinds of obstacles present in the world.
The show is directed by the following directors: Carolina Sá (Brazil), DeeptiKakkar&Fahad Mustafa (India), Hikaru Toda (Japan), Mo-young (South Korea), Chico Pereira (Spain) and Elaine McMillion Sheldon (USA). In addition, XanAranda is serving as the primary showrunner and co-executive producer.
The show will be available on Netflix on the 13th of April. Check out the trailer and the official synopsis of the docuseries below.
