21 WAYS TO MY STUFF RUIN A MARRIAGE TAVARATAIVAS

When twentysomething Petri gets dumped by his girlfriend, he decides to start an experiment on himself: he puts all his belongings into a storage container. For one year, Petri can retrieve only one item per day and he is not allowed to buy anythíng new. New life begins naked next to a radiator.

21 TAPAA PILATA AVIOLIITTO There are 21 ways to ruin a marriage and that’s enough to convince Sanna that falling in love is folly. As her extensive studies show ‘Divorce is a natural and probable consequence of falling in love.’ Love and sex are two different things, and she prefers the latter, in an intoxicated state if possible. Marriage is a business agreement. And to prove her point she is conducting an extensive study interviewing couples from their marriage to their inevitable divorce. When Aleksi comes into her life, she finds herself smitten and her world is about to be turned upside down.

AAMU FILMCOMPANY LTD Aamu Film Company Ltd was founded in 2001, and we have produced both fiction and documentary films in various lengths. We have both won prizes and made mistakes – but fortunately learned from both of them. Over the years, we have noticed that the art of cinema is serious fun. If we do not like something, we do not do it. But when we do, we give it all. That is what we are good at. We aim to build long relationships with directors and screenwriters who have a unique approach to filmmaking. We usually start from short films and proceed to international feature films in order to make their style, content and ensemble to reach their peak. We both know that content always shapes the form. We know that every film making process has to be custom-made for the content in question. AAMU FILMCOMPANY LTD HIIHTOMÄENTIE 34 FI-00800 HELSINKI FINLAND
