Varjoja Paratiisissa (Shadows in Paradise)
In this romantic comedy, Nikander (Matti Pellonpaa) is a lonely garbage-truck driver who meets the homely check-out clerk Ilona (Kati Outinen). Their painful shyness makes for slow romantic progress, until Ilona loses her job, and the two rendezvous in a cozy country motel. Nikander proposes after returning items stolen by Ilona in retaliation for her being fired. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Gives the stale conventions of the rom com the dark flipside they need, while downsizing that genre's normally bourgeois sensibilities into a class all its own."
‑ Anton Bitel, Eye for Film
