A true theater comedy. There's nothing pretentious and I'm not pretentious. All actors behave professionally and give characters real consistence. The movie drives you smoothly to the end in a continuous entertainment with easy to find everyday human profiles. The natural scenery makes yet lighter and wild the plot. A plot that has nothing new on the subject but, I just found healthy to remember us from time to time the many useless and stressful lies human urbanites live and put on. It doesn't matter the latitude, we lie. This light comedy, supposedly inexpensive, brings out a Nordic often forgotten society which reflects exactly all other more on view similar. Director Mäkelä quite finely uses her knowledge of common women patterns, well accented for the opera, making them as funny as a cartoon; she's too compassionate with men though, well, the works turns around peculiar Eiia anyway. Our societies are full of these behavioral social illness - often hidden under "good manners" labels - Why pretend they were argument of the 50-60s when they are at our side (or parts of us) in everyday life? Ah, if critics used some humbleness! Words can be tiring. I much enjoyed this movie
