Man and a Baby (2017)
Directed by Marja Pyykkö
First film we screen is a Finnish comedy based on popular novel by Eve Hietamies.
"Goodbye sex, nights in a bar and journalistic gigs. Welcome puke towels, artificial mother’s milk and Teletubbies. But where in hell can a man from the Stone Age find the maternal genes?”
The life of Antti Pasanen, a journalist, is in order. His wife is just about to give birth. Until, in front of the Maternity Hospital, everything changes. With a sniveling bundle in his arms, Antti sees the taillights of a taxi fading away, with his wife Pia in the backseat and their future as a core family in jeopardy. The life in terms of the baby begins and little does Antti know what it demands from him.
