  • Screening Time:
  • Year:
  • 2017

  • Hayflower and Quiltshoe’s family is about to go on vacation. Kattilakoski Mother Hannah has planned a magical week in a luxurious villa. But by chance, the whole family winds up in the wrong “villa”, next door to a cabin occupied by local town police officers. The officers realize the mix-up in time and pose as artists, in hopes of being left alone by the visitors. Hayflower and Quiltshoe’s suspicions are woken immediately, and great spy adventure ensue. When on top of everything some prison escapees turn out to be hiding nearby, misunderstandings lead to a colorful adventure comedy.

    Director’s Statement: Hayflower and Quiltshoe were first introduced in Tiina and Sinikka Nopola’s inspirational books when I was just a kid. The writers welcomed me with open arms, right into the heart-warmingly warped reality of Hayflower and Quiltshoe. Before we knew it, our unified vision was clear. We wanted to create a comedy that celebrated the quirky characters from the book. Our goal was to make a film that portrayed a story brimming with fun disguises and white lies that lead to hilarious outcomes, a film that would bring laughter to both adults and children alike.
