Not the easiest one to understand

  • but a masterwork in any case!


This film is one of the many ones based on the novel "Juha", written by one of the most talented finnish writers ever, Juhani Aho. In my opinion, this is the interpretation to watch, as the clever humor hidden in the scenes is most refreshing. For a Finn even the subtlest jokes in the film become evident!
