first word - touching. but it is only a small suggestion. in fact, it is a kind of poem. puzzle of precise art to give to each piece not only importance but soul. it is beautiful but not the beauty is important. Kaarina Hazard, who remembers by Restituta Kafka, in an extraordinary role, mixture of force and storm of feelings, Heikki Nousiainen as priest who gives the light of Orthodoxy - delicate scene in church - in skin of Protestantism, Jukka Keinonen as postman - fragile, naive, full of fear. and the letters as axis of story. it is a gem. or an ice castle because, for director and viewer, the risk is same - to fall. but the gift is the subtle joy. that is basis for my invitation to see it. because it has potential of experience. because, like each good movie, it is a window - mirror. and because the faith has strange power to change a life.
