Storyline

A Finn preparing a work on the Russian hunting traditions and customs, comes to Russia to collect materials and is invited to take part in a hunting party. His flamboyant companions include an Army general, with more than a passing resemblance to Aleksander Lebed, a police detective, local forest ranger (a devotee of Zen Buddhism) and some big-city types from St. Petersburg. Inevitably, their good intentions soon give way to endless drinking, visits to local farm girls and much else besides. Written by Maywin Media AB <maywin@mbox200.swipnet.se>

Trivia

As Raivo gets acquainted with the group, one of them cracks that the Russian elephant is the best friend of the Finnish elephant, a line which leaves the Finn completely bewildered. This is a reference to a well-known Soviet joke poking fun at academics whose adherence to the party line often resulted in nonsense. The joke: Competing to write a book on African elephants, a Frenchman produces a volume on the love lives of elephants; a German writes a 21-volume series titled "A Brief Introduction to the African Elephant", and the Soviet writer comes up with just one sentence: "The African elephant is the best friend of the Soviet elephant."

What shall we do with drunken hunter?
22 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

I should like to underline the movie is NOT for abstinents since from a point of view it may be seen as "only about drinking" movie. The story starts when a young Finn comes to experience real Russian hunt. He has had plenty of dreams about it, so they appear randomly in the film. The reality directs him to the absurd reality that only people with delirium tremens may have known - his companions simple refuse to stop their spiritual way to nowhere and if they luckily are sober, everything turns to even greater absurdity (finding the pineapple in Siberia is my favourite one).

Note: Watch it subtitled only, because a lot of jokes are based on Russian x Finish lingual dissimilarity, which obviously cannot be understood when dubbed.
