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.
