Storyline

Laila is an innocent Lappish girl and the only daughter of a reindeer herder. During world war II Laila rescues crashed German fighter pilot Hans and the two develop warm feelings for each other during his convalescence. Years later, after the war, Hans returns to Lapland as a freelance photographer and manages to lure Laila to run away with him to capital Helsinki to start a career as a photo model, much to the chagrin of her traditional father Aslak. After initial happiness, however, Hans abandons Laila and the decadent lifestyle of a big city sends her life into a downward spiral. Written by Ulf Kjell Gür

It's a raw diamond, a drama shown with heart
15 May 2014 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

Being the very first Finnish movie I have seen, I can only make a statement on its own. It has a fantastic a plot meant to be sad, but instead making the viewer feel pleased and excited, presented in its own very unique looks, despite the ultra low budget that reach the peak of plain hilarious in certain scenes.

Gorgeus female actress shine over all the cast, one can feel she is the center of the movie from start to finish. She grows emotionally, although, some of the situations are a bit over-dramatic, she reacts as a human being would, taking what there is and going forward with her best, getting knocked down from time to time as we all do. Definitely a must watch for any drama fan.
