Self-taught philosopher Konsta Pylkkänen guides a group of researchers through Finland's Kainuu wilderness in the hopes of having a "sinistä ajatusta", idea out of the blue. While firing upon a hybrid of the hazel grouse and the western capercaillie, kinds of birds, he indeed makes a scientific discovery.
A very good book turned to a movie by a very good director and excellent actors but the result is a failure. What went wrong?
The only explanation I can think of is that I and the director have understood the story from very different starting points. Casting is brilliant but only theoretically. These usually unbeatable actors simply don't fit in their roles. I have seen them acting wonderfully but now comes this disaster.
Only the cameramen have done their job perfectly. Beautiful nature, the desert with its inhabitants is pictured beautifully.
I would recommend a better focus in choosing the actors next time. Never mind how well these actors usually perform, now they are simply in unsuitable roles.
