  • McSmith's rating of the film Producing Adults

    Watched as this is one of the few Finnish films at my local library. Didn't enjoy... a collection of some of the most selfish, least likeable protagonists I've ever come across, but the film is framed as a quirky romcom, so my repulsed reaction doesn't seem intended by the filmmakers. The only reason I can think of for which someone would want to make this film is that it's autobiographical, which is just terrifying.
