Orlando and Mikael go under the knife in hope of finding their true selves, only to realize that life on the other side isn’t as they had dreamed of. Now, well into their 60s, the two meet for the first time to talk about their lives as well as the one defining regret they both share: their sex change. Regretters is directed by Marcus Lindeen.
Regretters is a film that stays with you long after you finish watching it, beautiful in both style and substance, and definitely one of the most thought-provoking films I’ve seen this year.

Absolutely stellar filmmaking here, providing enlightened, frank and beautiful portraits to share with the audience. It’s a must-see.
The best film of the year is probably already here. Completely and utterly breathtaking and amazing. You. Must. See. It.

Regretters is one of the best Swedish documentaries I have ever seen.
One of the most dazzling documentary films in ages. I have rarely seen a film with this much SOUL.
P3 Kultur, The National Swedish Radio
Excellent… I was blown away in the cinema.
Whoever gave talking heads a bad name should bow their head in shame when confronted with Regretters. Marcus Lindeen’s sensitive portrait of two men in conversation is a stunning testimony to the magic of a face, a meeting and the potency of sharing your life story. A complete and highly intense film.
