Media Luna Picks Up Samuli Valkama’s ‘No Thank You’

LONDON — Sales company Media Luna has acquired Samuli Valkama’s comedy-drama “No Thank You,” which is based on Anna-Leena Harkonen’s novel “Ei Kiitos.”

“No Thank You” centers on Heli, whose husband is impervious to her charms, preferring computer games to her company. She then meets Jarno, an attractive young man who pays her the attention she craves.

Pic is Valkama’s second feature, and follows debut “Love and Other Troubles,” which premiered in 2012. His short film “Alright Love” won the Berlin Today Award at the 2005 Berlin Film Festival.
