Dir: Joona Tena, script: Outi Keskevaari, Katri Manninen, DoP: Jarkko T. Laine, music: Sakari Salli, cast: Minna Haapkylä, Petteri Summanen, Laura Malmivaara, prod: MRP / Talent House, print: Finnish Film Foundation

FC Venus is a romantic comedy of men and women, and the differencies between the two. It is a story of success and failure, the joy of winning and the fear of losing - and football. It sets in contrast the last male stronghold in life, football, and women’s expectations for the future. Women challenge their men to the game of their life.
Anna ends up making a bet with her husband Pete: Anna puts together a team out of the wives and girlfriends of his football team and they will challenge the men to a match at the end of the summer. If the women win, the men will have to give up football. If the men win, the women will never again give the men a hard time about their hobby.

NB! Leading actress Minna Haapkylä will be present at the screening.

In Finnish, with English and Estonian subtitles
