Lise LorenzenAndrzej Biskup,
Neuci de Souza,
This is a great, humane "documentary" about Finnish men sitting and talking in a sauna. I want to use "documentary" because the filming in small saunas is something that just can't be done smoothly - one can't forget that there are 1-3 cameras looking at you. This doesn't really matter, but some of the scenes have a feeling of a filtered response.
These men speak emotionally about their experiences and in the end the viewer won't be left cold. The music is splendid, suits perfectly the pacing and there is also warm humor to be seen. I was truly touched by this, some of men are so sincere with their story. There is also a great surprise, something that you just can't believe at first. It is great to see movies like these to get the audience they deserve, it has been quite a hit in Finland.
This film also has decent subtitles in English, and I'm positive this will make international success too. In fact, everyone should see this, because it tells something very deep and wise about life in itself.
