Trivia

Filming of the same story was about to begin in 1934 with Risto Orko directing, but new CEO of the production company decided to produce Siltalan pehtoori (1934) instead. Valentin Vaala finally directed this story in 1947 and a remake of Siltalan pehtoori (1934) in 1953. See more »

Beautiful mess
21 February 2006 | by (finland) – See all my reviews

A doctor encouraged by the death of his son leaves his wife and former life to start again in Lapland.

Many early Finnish films had great scripts but somehow only few finally managed to become as great movies. "Maarit - tunturien tyttö" is no exception. Lapland offers beautiful surroundings for a slow and dark tragedy but Valentin Vaala winds the melodrama so fast that the concept goes totally waste.

Visually the film is beautiful - as it should be - but the use of music is so disturbing that it really makes angry how it kills the silent and calm atmosphere. One just can't imagine how the masterpiece "Ihmiset suviyössä" came after this one.
