Storyline

An old dog has a hard time learning new tricks in this drama set in Turku. Ari, a paramedic, is a chronic womanizer; he makes it a point of pride to never sleep with the same woman twice, and his nights are a long series of brazen one-night stands. But when Ari meets Tiina (Laura Malmivaara), something unexpected happens - he falls in love. For the first time, Ari finds himself pursuing a long-term relationship, and he makes a genuine effort to remain faithful to her. But old habits die hard; Tiina introduces Ari to her circle of friends and temptation arises as he encounters Hanna-Riikka, a theology student, and Ilona, who is soon to be married. Despite Ari's feelings for Tiina, he begins having affairs with both Hanna-Riikka and Ilona, leading to an unpleasant revelation on the day of Ilona's nuptials. Written by Mark Deming, Allrovi

I really enjoyed! I was suprised !
21 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

I am a Brazilian that lives in Finland. Me and my bf rented 5 movies and one of them was this finnish movie Levottomat. It was the only good movie we rented to be honest and all the other ones were hollywood productions. I like the acting and I have already chose Irina as my favorite finnish actress... I have seen another movie with her. But anywayz It's worthy it !
