Nice shots of Finnish nature
4 November 2016 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

The video quality of the film is excellent throughout. I'd never seen such clear underwater footage from a Finnish lake before. I found it interesting to hear the Finnish folklore tales of the lakes and their inhabitants, but I would like to have seen a little more human interaction.

On the negative side, I found the music score to be tiring in the extreme. It practically never stops, and rather than hearing the amazing occasional sounds of the vast nature one is subjected to this never-ending pompous pseudo-classical muzak. A huge missed opportunity. For me it ruined the movie and I won't be recommending it, sadly.
