The movie makes references to Nazarin (1959) with an upside-down poster of the film that can be seen on a wall, and also to Samuel Fuller - behind the village police commissioner that Juha goes to see, a sentence is written on the blackboard which says: "Arrest this man! - Sam Fuller". See more »
There's a special version without soundtrack to be used when music is provided by live orchestra. See more »
but a masterwork in any case! This film is one of the many ones based on the novel "Juha", written by one of the most talented finnish writers ever, Juhani Aho. In my opinion, this is the interpretation to watch, as the clever humor hidden in the scenes is most refreshing. For a Finn even the subtlest jokes in the film become evident!
