The Harvest Month is absolutely one of the best films that has ever been made in Finland. It is a story of Viktor Sundvall, a guard of a little channel in the Finnish countryside. In his youth he had great plans to become a playwright, but all his dreams were destroyed, when he began to drink.
The Harvest Month is a movie of the last day of the life of Viktor Sundvall. On that day he has to face his past. He faces the fact that he has not lived his life, because he has been too weak. He has been too afraid of life and that's why he has became an alcoholic. At the end of the film he understands that there is no more reason to live. Dieing is the only option.
