'Levottomat,' 'Beauty' lead, 'Beach' survives crix

HELSINKI — The Oscar winners continue to perform strongly at the Finnish box office. “American Beauty” alone has chalked up more than 200,000 admissions to date.

The strongest performer, however, is a local film, “Levottomat” (The Restless), directed by Aku Louhimies. Two months after its release, this promiscuity-fueled drama set among thirtysomethings is still leading the Finnish B.O. charts with 250,000 admissions to date.
