Feature film | Romance | Comedy Duration 85:00


Another Finnish guy has fallen overboard from a ferry at the port of Tallinn. He has come to Estonia in order to find himself a decent wife. "Kinnunen" is a comedy about Juha Kinnunen and Estonian teacher Õie Kannike who happen to meet and start teaching each other. Kinnunen is not an ordinary man. He is a Finnish man. Õie is not an ordinary woman. She is an Estonian woman. It is not easy to find common ground. Because one of them is a woman and the other one is a man.
