Produced by Jassi Rantamuki and Emilia Houkka, the film, originally made at Christmas, will show a family of eight struggling to communicate and echo Tolstoy’s assertion that all happy families are the same but each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.
“I’ve been working with the same directors for many years, not to mention many interesting projects. Then I watched Tear Graduation briefly and realized that we needed to find a place for one more.
“Luckily, Emilia Hauka is producing next to me these days so we have more potential. I contacted Tear and she told me she was making a feature film with the same title. So here we are!”, He added.
While not ashamed of the conflict, Kouvo-Finnish still wants to show the humor emanating from the Gothenburg-based-human conversation, following his aforementioned 2018 short path, which led him to a win at the Tempera Film Festival and attracted Amur’s attention.

“I want to show all these missed opportunities to truly connect and have a nice time together. These people love each other, so sad is when they can’t solve real problems and leave without saying something important. My purpose is to ask: ‘Why is it so hard to be happy? As an individual and as a family ?, ” he says.
