Beautiful mosaic story
7 March 2012 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

This film received quite average reviews from critics, so I was pleasantly surprised by how it mesmerized me. The film focuses on the lives of three women of the same family in three different eras, 1940's, 1970's and 2010's. Their lives are inter-cut to show parallel themes in the women's lives. All of them are essentially looking for the same thing, a place in the world and a soul mate. The main theme of the film is time, and the main thesis is that all times exist in us simultaneously.

Cantell's talent of directing actors is obvious here. The dialogue is vibrant and the acting seems effortless. Petersdottir and Nenonen give good performances, but Björklund pushes her acting a bit far. Lauri Tanskanen gives a very charismatic performance as the young aspiring chef, Ville. I hope to see more of his acting in the future.

Cinematography, sound editing and editing are all done in a good fashion. The set design and costume design are subtly done, showing the different eras in the products and clothing, but not emphasizing them too much.

The film seems to fail in its box office goal, which is sad. Go see it while you can.
