How I Live, as You Wanted to Know

The young filmmaker's grandfather has lived alone since his wife died last year. But now he has met a new woman on the internet. And to persuade her to visit him, his grandson Christian has to help him shoot a small film about what the title promises: what he lives like. For this is something she'd really like to know. The result is a warm, loving and understatedly witty 'home video'. And even if not much is said as we are taken around the house, every small detail is full of the stories of a whole lifetime.
