Trivia

Screenwriter Veli-Pekka Hänninen made a complaint against the studio behind the film. He claimed that the studio had changed the script (despite a written contract which forbids to alter the script without the consent of the screenwriter) so much that it was no longer the film that he had written. In spring 2006 the district court ruled in favour of the defendant as it considered it premature to make ruling based on unfinished film. In late January 2007 Helsinki Court of Appeal decided the case and overturned the previous verdict, thus further distribution of this film will be halted and Lasihelmifilmi has to pay Hänninen EUR 10 000 + interest as copyright compensation. Also the company is obliged to pay over EUR 22 000 of legal and other fees. See more »

Lovable and truly Nordic story that I recommend
12 January 2013 | by (Lithuania) – See all my reviews

Hi. Just seen the movie in Vilnius, Lithuania. Elegant humor, subtle "Nordic" lifestyle critique and lots of love to a human being -- this is what I saw in the movie. The director is right stating in his interviews being rather close to Kieslowski's philosophy: he is not questioning the Decalogue but rather discussing on it with us. The main character, a protestant priest, is trying to match his artsy soul, live flesh and "celestial" duties. Besides, he has problems with his male potential because of his inclination to drinking. While his wife is trying to get him promoted to the bishop's state, he continues living a sinful though very understandable and rather easy life familiar to all of us. I was impressed by the end of the movie: his sermon which is to be shortly shown on television suddenly turns into the improvised song (the genre in which the character is clearly more talented than in writing texts to his own sermons. The song is about him being a human, who is dressed in the priest's clothes only by "formal" requirements. Otherwise, he is only a mediator between his visitors and The God.

Thumbs up: I had a warm and emotional evening in the snowy (frozen) Nordic city. Thanks again, the existing rating (to me) is really inadequate. I give much more!
