This documentary film is an insight into the lives of eight Czech families or individuals living permanently in Sweden. What has this country given them or taken away? What are their views on leaving Czechoslovakia and living in the North after forty years? How do they and their children who were born here perceive Sweden and the Swedish society? The film does not only peek inside the Czech families but also reveals the atmosphere of Swedish towns and villages and tinges everything with original Czech and Swedish music.

In Tamil Culture the parents are traditionally responsible to find a suitable marrige partner for their children. “Love warriages” exist as well, but are less accepted in society. Sri Lanka people, who migrate to Europe, often continue the tradition of the “arranged marriage”. That means, that young Tamils, who grew up in a western society, get confronted with contrasting ideals concerning marriage.

The ethnographic documentary “Arranged love” discusses, based in three portraits, different ways of young Sri Lankan couples to deal with that issue. The film shows different point of views, what conflicting situations can emerge and what opinions the couples hold on western ways of love amd marriage.
