When the time stands still
31 January 2006 | by (finland) – See all my reviews

It starts in the evening, evening turns into night and after all 66 minutes the morning breaks in. Along those hours love finds another while someone is left alone; death is faced with human understanding and new life is welcomed with the greatest joy but the sun never goes down.

Nobel-winning writer F.E. Sillanpää's poetic tale is so tight that you won't believe it's over when THE END flashes onto screen. One can easily sense the smell of plains and the touch of a light wind in the night-less night of continuous life.

A genuine landmark of Finnish movie.
