A refreshingly different take on a "chick flick" theme
This film, about a single girl struggling to find the perfect guy to settle down with, is a refreshing change to other films in the same genre. The characters are not only realistic (something so hard to find in American films similar to this) but also make decisions which actually make sense when you consider the information that the story has given you about them. It might be hard to see outside of Finland but is worthwhile seeking out if you're losing faith in this area of film.
