Richard's Review of Lapsia ja aikuisia - Kuinka niitä tehdään? (Producing Adults)
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.
