Kuutamolla, Movie in Quotes

By 1258miles @1258miles

Kuutamolla (2002) is a Finnish movie based on a novel written by Katja Kallio. It’s directed by Aku Louhimies.

Kuutamolla tells a story about Iiris, a girl who works in a book shop, spends her days watching movies and dreaming about great love, the kind of she would see in the movies. This is not a typical love story, it’s a story about no love, about many loves and many heart breaks. It’s funny, cruel, real and brilliant.


Here’s my favorite quotes of the movie to walk you through it. Then watch it.
