This is the way sequels should be made
12 September 2006 | by (finland) – See all my reviews

No one can question Vaino Linna's influence on Finnish movie. As it is incomparable to all other writers of the time and place, still some individuals have risen above other in the dusty line of time.

Next to Mika Waltari, Hella Wuolijoki (as he's called) can be held as one of those individuals. Wuolijoki's writings are mostly connected to Valentin Vaala as it also stands with "Loviisa, Niskavuoren nuori emanta".

Loviisa is an unofficial sequel to "Niskavuoren naiset" (1938) which was a real way-point of melodramatic movie-making in Nordic darkness. Actually Loviisa is a prequel as it deepens it's precursors ideals and moral responsibilities.

Vaala does his work very well again and the story works perfectly. Emma Vaananen's role deserves an extra mention as it can be compared to the later version where she plays her role again 10 years later.

This is the way sequels should be made.
