Still into you

(Lauluja Rakkaudesta)

Six Finnish stories about love, old age, intimacy, devotion, abandonment, hope and karaoke.

“A thousand thanks for this day”, says 75-year-old Paavo as he hugs his life partner, who is a few years younger and lovingly cares for him and prays each night that Paavo is not in pain. Yki is 80 and fell in love with his same-aged wife Sirkka 6 years ago – it was love at first sight. “You’re my beauty”, he tells her during an intimate moment. After 56 years of marriage, Risto writes a letter expressing his love for his wife as she drifts away from him before his eyes. Raija, a widow, relearns how to find joy in life as Maricca tries to find her a man who is a generation younger. Wistful Finnish songs form the backdrop for this poetic film about the power of love in old age.
