| psychological, entertaining, very good actors
This film is a Finnish step towards Ingmar Bergman's way of making films: Very carefully picked actors playing splendidly well.This is a serious film, still containing humor enough to make it easy and light to watch. Helsinki appears as a very beautiful city.

The divorce, loneliness and pain are described truthfully. The starring characters maintain their dignity even though they face very heavy difficulties. Romance in the film, obvious to everybody but the main characters, advances slowly without exaggeration. And is tolerable even for a man like me.

I would have given 9/10, but in the end of the movie there are two hospital emergencies in a row too close to each other. It is logical, because one crises leads to another, but the same situation is repeated too soon. So 8/10 will have to be enough.
