If you are feeling a bit in need of comfort can I recommend this film. It's a romance story that isn't OTT. It's Finnish and the Finnish countryside looks beautiful. The characters are sometimes funny and sometimes touching. If I have one criticism I would like to have seen some older women as well as the old men in it. But that's just by the by. Some of the claims aboutChinese food may be a touch exaggerated but it does leave you with a longing to have fresh food which is healthy and well cooked. Think I would love to visit Finland.

I’m going to look for it.

My son loves the Finnish people. He always says that they are so civilised.

BBC 4. It was on last night in the 9pm slot where they usually have a foreign series/film.

Sorry if I got it wrong. I'm debating if I should watch it again. It was so uplifting.

Even my husband enjoyed it! Thanks for recommending.

I just loved it! Gentle and healing and lovely ending.
Cannot recommend it too highly.

So pleased others enjoyed it. It was slipped in so quietly as well. Why don't they praise films like this?
I watched "The Banshees of Innisherin" in the afternoon. An excellent film but not one which leaves a feel-good factor. This was so much better for my mood.

I must look for it.
We spent some happy days in Finland 🙂
