Married couple Malte and Liv are on vacation in Mallorca when three young men invade their apartment. Two of them pin Malte down as the last one rapes Liv. When the couple returns home to Germany, they try to put the incident behind them. Two years pass, and life begins to return to normal, when Malte suddenly runs into the perpetrator, and begins stalking the man. After a while, he involves Liv in his obsession and the pain they had conquered returns with full force.
THE MOST BEAUTIFUL COUPLE is on one hand a gripping revenge thriller, and on the other a complex relationship drama. Although the film at first glance can bring to mind Michael Hanekes classic FUNNY GAMES, director Sven Taddicken is more concerned with humanizing his characters and exploring the aftermath of a deeply traumatic experience.
