What else have we done:

Short film: Monte Rosso

  • 38" in Finnish
  • 2K / DVD with English subtitles
  • Production 2008 for Yle and The Finnish Film Fund

"Monte Rosso is an urban comedy with fresh and realistic dialogue, groovy sounds and a compelling story.

Eki (Manne Tainio) is only trying to chill and get high in a park after a long week at work. He even has a beautiful lady in sight, but a bicycle thief, debts to beefcake crooks and an empty bank account make things a lot more complicated than he was expecting.

With no money and in between all the hassle, getting a date and scoring some weed takes Eki toa thrilling ride on the streets of Helsinki."
