“The title refers to a term used in the beauty world‘, the director explained.Once, at a party, a friend sat next to a plastic surgeon, and after a quick look at his face, he said to him: “Oh, you have a very deep sad triangle, but … I can fix it with Botox. In fifteen minutes! ‘. He was referring to the wrinkles in the middle of his eyebrows, which in Swedish we call a “trouble wrinkle”, because it indicates that you’ve had to put up with a lot of battles in your life…I thought that choice said something about our time and our obsession with appearances.“.
