MISTER 8
Finland - 2021
Teemu Nikki, Jani Pösö

Season 1 - 8x30' | International Premiere
In Finnish with English & French subtitles
Ep. 1 & 2

Synopsis
Life is good for Maria. She’s the CEO of a family business, and there is more than enough love in her life. It’s no wonder because Maria has seven spouses, a different man for every weekday. Maria falls in love with Juho, who has just moved into the town. But sadly, there are not eight days a week.

Note from the artistic direction
A comedy has rarely offered such a beautiful and meticulous image, with its magnificent black and white. This Finnish smooth talking, as bizarre as It is eccentric, plays with the rules and reverses the roles. Here, men are the puppets of the radiant Krista Kosonen.
