Synopsis by Hal Erickson

The first of Gustav Molander's two 1948 productions was Nu Borjar Livet, released in English-speaking countries as We Live Now. Written and directed by Molander, the film serves as an excellent showcase for Mai Zetterling, here cast as a young woman named Vera Ullman. When unhappily married clergyman Tore Gerhard (George Rydeberg) seeks solace outside his home, he finds it with the loving Vera. Fearing a scandal, Gerhard refuses to divorce his wife Dorrit (Wanda Rothgardt). When she realizes that her relationship with the minister will always be a back-street affair, Vera returns to the arms of her faithful -- and very patient -- boyfriend. Successful in Sweden, Nu Borjar Livet did passable business elsewhere.
