Director and screenwriter Antti Heikki Pesonen's short film Korsoteoria became an immediate success a few years back. -- Headfirst is Pesonen's debut feature and it's delightfully original. -- The film's focus lies on every day crisis. Wonderful Mimosa Willamo plays a teenager with anger issues. A single-mother, powerfully portrayed by Armi Toivanen, does her best to help her daughter, among her own issues. -- The mother-daughter picture expands itself into an anthology of suburbian folk, focusing on their dreams and dreams unfulfilled.
