Documentary on the city of Helsinki that is beautifully scripted, piecing together very old to more recent footage of all areas of the city. It covers the time period from around the turn of the century to the 1990s. It also includes footage from classic Finnish films that were filmed and based in Helsinki. It is beautifully narrated throughout (english subtitles as well) and shows a fair amount of the work from the famous Finnish still photographer Signe Brander (1869- 1942), who was famous for her street shots and vignettes of everyday life in Finland. Much/most of her work was done in Helsinki. If you are familiar with Helsinki, and you love its history - this is a must watch for you.
