Posted by Elina Pohjola - 14/07/2014

Here For A While is a new kind of music film set in the modern-day world. The movie will be filmed around Helsinki in June and July.

Here for a While is a story of Selja, who is in her thirties and lives in a commune with her friends. One day a boy appears behind her door. The boy she gave up for adoption sixteen years ago. Selja gets another chance to get to know his son, but at the same time he completely mixes up her life, and those of her best friends. Main cast consists of Maria Ylipää, Johannes Brotherus, Riku Nieminen, Pihla Maalismaa, Peter Kanerva, Anu Sinisalo and Timo Tuominen.

The movie’s engaging songs are written precisely for this movie by the very top Finnish songwriters including Olavi Uusivirta, Sanni, Terhi Kokkonen, Joel Melasniemi, Kerkko Koskinen, Yona, Asa, Super Janne, producer MGI (Henri Lanz) and Matti Pitkänen. More names will be added to the list and will be published later this year.

Here for a While is written by Tua Harno and director of the film is Oskari Sipola. The film is distributed by Nordisk Film and will be in cinemas in Finland at late summer 2015.
