THICK LASHES OF LAURI MÄNTYVAARA

thick_lashes_of_lauri_mantyvaara_-_official_trailer

Best friends Satu and Heidi preach that true love is not for sale as they go around sabotaging posh weddings. Then one of the girls falls head over heels in love with the local hockey star Lauri.

Love and friendship is put to the test in this quirky romantic comedy. The film is summery and light, but at the same time completely whimsical and distorted – as young love can be. We crash head on into a hormone storm involving a whole row of characters. This is the first film for both two lead actresses, Inka Haapamäki and Rosa Honkonen, and they absolutely own the screen.

Introduction before and Q&A after screenings on Tuesday and Thursday.
