Movie Info

Producing Adults concerns a fertility counselor named Venla who is, ironically, childless. Although she wants to be a mother in the worst way, her significant other has no desire to become a father. One of Venla's co-workers, a doctor named Satu, offers to impregnate Venla with one of the samplings from the sperm donations kept at the clinic. The plot thickens when Venla begins to have serious feelings for Satu. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Simply adding a lesbian element to the standard chick-flick love triangle is not enough to make a film original or compelling.

Gives the subject of exploring same sex romances the dignity and respect it deserves.

Finnish romance-relationship film where the heteros (or hetero/traditional monogamies) are sort of demonized. The ice-skating boyfriend character is the epitome of insane egocentrism and the straight woman's nightmare. The devil has a handsome face. I found the tangled relationships between the four characters to be believable and enlightening as to the female's struggle. If women can't rely upon the men, then are they to blame if they only have each other to fend for? The plot is an argument for sperm donation, in vitro, artificial insemination, and basically any unorthodox conception method in general, for not just female couples but single mothers and child yearning women in that similar position, because clearly some people just aren't cut out for the child conjuring they've been donned with. Sweet, simple, evenly paced, and enriching.

Seeing as this is a Finnish film, I'm guessing that would be why the actors didn't really display too many emotions? That was one of the first things I noticed, the lead male didn't display his emotions at times where it was warranted. Overall a good movie, but the ending was a little abrupt, even though I can only guess where they are going from there. Solid performances though.

this was actually better than I thought it would be. I thought it was going to the same story you usually see in lesbian movies. but it wasnt. there was rarely any lesbianism in at all, which ias what makes it good. The story lets the two women develop a relationship first before jumping each other's bones. :)
