Finland, a small town in the middle of nowhere, and a kid who
constantly hears sounds of swishing in his head. This is the set up for
'Tuulikaappimaa' in brief.
The narrative is structured around the kid, who, as the story develops,
is misplaced from his usual environment to interact with other people
of the outback in Finland.
This set up gives an opportunity to examine the characters out of their
ordinary life contexts. As the main character remains almost the same,
his behaviour provokes the other characters to step out of their
conventions in life. As a set up, this background gives an opportunity
to explore the characters, but mostly it is a good platform for (dark)
Some of the humour can be really culture related, and reading any text
by Jari Tervo, (the writer of the story) would certainly help in
understanding the mental landscape of this film.
If you have not, though, watch this film anyway because you are not
likely to see anything like this anywhere else.
