Finnish porn movie producer Pertsa returns from America to his home country to continue his profession with hopelessly small budgets and incompetent casts and crews. A self-ironic satire about director Donner's scandalous fame in late 1960s Finland, notorious for a graphic long shot of his penis pointing northeast. Written by
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.
