My close friend was told that he suffered from the most aggressive form of brain cancer, also known as “the terminator”. The mortality rate is 100%. The doctors gave him a year to live. In this documentary we follow him, his wife and children, through the road filled with both love and despair – from diagnosis to death. The film portrays the entire process in a very personal, naked and loving manner. Cancer is an almost national disease. Everyone knows someone who has suffered from cancer. Although many can be cured today, a cancer diagnosis always reminds us that we are mortal and about the important values of life. Until Cancer Do Us Part is a highly touching, inspiring and timeless documentary. This film shows that even in the midst of the darkest tragedy the lust for life and fighting spirit can survive. Most of all this is a story about the power of love.
Three days after my friend Peter Snickars was told that he suffered from the most aggressive form of brain cancer we met and the idea of making a documentary about his fight for his life was born that day. Since then I continuously filmed Peter and his family throughout the process. I followed Peter through the hospital treatments, alternative forms of treatments and in their search for miracles. I followed them everywhere until the touching end. In this documentary we come close to all the thoughts that goes through the mind of a man facing death, all the frustrations a family goes through in such a situation, but most of all we see a strong love that keeps the hope through all the difficult times. My hope is that this film will help other people who are learning that their relative or friend suffers from cancer. Jan-Olof Svarvar
