Modern piece of gold in the real spirit of 70's
16 March 2006 | by (finland) – See all my reviews

Jörn Donner is an interesting character in the small history of Nordic movie making. His ironic and ground-breaking "Naisenkuvia" can be seen as the big bang of 70's modern film specially in Finland.

Donner himself plays the main character, a porn film director looking for real love to capture to his new film. The plot is very ironic and self critical when it laughs at the twisted picture of romance straight in the mirror.

The movie has no actual story, its striking force is among the brilliant and realistic lines that attack against the whole social community based on the blind relationships between the two sexes. Even if the audiovisual looks are no more fascinating today the sharp scenes bite still very hard.
