70 is Just a Number
In this warm-hearted romantic comedy, superstar singer Seija Kuula (Hannele Lauri) soon-to-be 70, is trying to cope with her career, age and love.
On stage, Seija sparkles in the light of the audience’s loving gaze, but at home she finds it difficult to get close to anyone. When Seija falls in love with a younger man, 40-something Lauri (Mikko Nousiainen), the relationship gets complicated when Lauri introduces her to his mother. Lauri wants children and Mirre wants to be a granny. When Seija’s stylist and closest friend Shanella suffers from a bad case of baby fever, Seija creates a masterplan to make everybody happy, only to realise that love is a dangerous game.
A tribute to Finnish female artists, the film features several hits loved by the nation. Combining friendships, dreams of starting a family, a parent-child relationship and an atypical intimate relationship, this film explores the many dimensions of love and tells the story of relationships, regardless of age.
Directed and written by Finnish comedy queen Johanna Vuoksenmaa, 70 is Just a Number is a touching and humorous coming-of-age-story – at 70.
