L’actrice finlandaise, Minna Haapkylä a remporté le prix du Meilleur second rôle féminin de l’académie de cinéma finlandaise pour son début dans Kiss me in the rain de Veikko Aaltonen avant de jouer dans le film Lovers and Leavers de Aku Louhimies.
«My latest film was called Lovers and Leavers and it is a story about a woman who is trying to find perfect love in the world. It was hard, because I played in every scene of the film, so that means that I was working 24 hours a day. I had four hours sleep a night and things like that. It was physically very hard. I'm not that interested in working in the United States, it is so huge, so big. I like Europe and I like European films, that is the main reason.
For me it is not the language, it is the director and the play or the film that I'm with and then the language is something that comes secondly. 'Finnish saying'... Exactly that means: 'If you try to get a pine tree you will get in the bushes right away - it means: if you try too hard to get too high you will fall down' ... that's really Finnish».
