:: PLOT

Iris is 30 years old and looking for the love of her life. So far she has found what she is looking for only in books and on the movie screen. She is a film lover who believes in the kind of life she sees in movies and, disappointed by reality, withdraws increasingly. Then she meets Marko. He not only looks great, but is also a successful young film director who knows her favourite movie scenes by heart and anticipates her every wish. But life is more complicated than any dream...

:: BIOGRAHY

Minna Haapkylä's was trained at the Theatre Academy of Finland. Following her four years of study, she was cast in roles which included Elvira in Don Juan and Marina in Burnt Orange. Her first significant film role was as Kirsi-Mari, in Kiss Me in the Rain, for which she won the Finnish Film Academy's Best Supporting Actress Award in 1999. Following this success, she was cast in many productions, some of which required her to act in languages other than her native Finnish, including 3 x Liv at the Swedish Theatre in Helsinki, and Une femme dans la rue, a feature film by Oliver Bourbeillon. In 2002, Minna had the featured role in the hit Lover and Leavers, and recently finished shooting the lead, Maria Kallio, in the Finnish TV series based on the popular books of Leena Lehtolainen.
