Valentin Vaala's problem as a film maker was usually the way he mixed up many different genres in one movie. So it happens this time.
"Linnaisten vihreä kamari" could be a scary horror movie, astonishing melodrama or a biting social critique. Instead it takes a small step towards all of them and it's exciting scenes are spoiled with comedy and dramatic ones would need more backing through the storyline.
Anyway acting is great and the script holds the story amazingly well. The setting needs also a fine word as the film came out right after the WW2.
Good work tough Vaala made some better ones at the time.
