Tales of Europe

A comedy about the tragedy of being forever young.

An old group of friends in their thirties gathers to celebrate Mitzi’s (Emmi Parviainen) surprise birthday party over a nostalgic weekend at an idyllic seaside villa—just like they used to do as teenagers. The party sets off on wrong tracks immediately, as the birthday girl is not so pleased about the surprise.

A tense situation is broken up, when Mitzi’s best friend Veronika (Laura Birn) brings along her new boyfriend Mikael (Christian Hillborg), a Swedish Hollywood star. Familiar surroundings and the old rituals get to the core of the group and make them forget their adulthood. Revelations, not meant to harm the balance, make them reassess their past as well as their present.
