Lastuja- Taiteilijasuvun Vuosisata (2011) is a fresh documentary from Peter von Bagh.Bagh and Eero Saarinen are the readers.It tells about Juhani Aho, the master of words.Last Sunday marked the 150th birthday of Aho.He died in 1921, at the age of 59.This movie ísn't only about Aho and his work, but also about his family and people that knew him.We get to see some art of his wife, Venny Soldan-Brofeldt.Sons Heikki Aho and Björn Soldan are represented through their movie art.Also his son Antti Aho has some role in the movie.Claire Aho's (b.1925) photographs take us to the more modern times.The documentary also goes through the triangle drama with Aho, Venny and her sister Tilly Soldan.This is a very fine documentary.It's also very beautiful.The way it uses music makes you sink into nostalgia.It brings the time, the time that has been long gone, near you.
