First Teaser for “Thick Lashes of Lauri Mäntyvaara”

Here’s the first teaser of Hannaleena’s first feature film “Thick Lashes of Lauri Mäntyvaara”.

In Finnish cinemas 28 July 2017.

BFF rebels Satu and Heidi go around the idyllic archipelago sabotaging posh summer weddings as they preach that real love is not for sale – until Heidi falls head over heels for the dreamy ice hockey protégé Lauri Mäntyvaara. Suddenly Satu is alone with her revolution while Heidi only sees cute kittens and oiled muscles everywhere. How can Satu now put a stop to the Scandinavian Geisha School’s plan of creating a generation of bimbos? Heidi’s big brother Henri provides unasked help – but is he and his Crocs just another kind of a threat? Love, friendship and the total upheaval of society are put to the final test in a clash of hockey, flamethrowers and a surreal sponsor cruise as Satu is forced to decide what she really, truly wants. And whether she dares to go for it.
