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

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
