Rastløs i paradis (Olavi Linna, DK, 2009)

Happiness. Can it exist anywhere? The film takes place in Solf, a small country village in Western Finland where everything has stagnated in its own peculiar way. Solf was offiically declared the 'most perfect village' in Finland in 2006. To some extent this has caused the village inhabitants to stop dreaming of better places. Why leave this paradise?
