An atmospheric indian summer triangle drama.
5 April 2003 | by SorsimusSee all my reviews

Decent melodrama from the studio era.

Liana Kaarina plays a vamp- like young vagrant hitch hiker, who gets a ride from older industrialist who consequently takes her to his summer house to be his mistress. She takes full advantage of the situation and plans a prosperous marriage when she meets a young man while skinny dipping...

Surprisingly fresh effort from (the biggest studio mogul of Finland) Särkkä, who (with great help from the master cinematographer Olavi Tuomi) succeeds in creating a suitably sleazy atmosphere to unfold the drama in.

This one was a big success at first release and was sold to 32 countries. Mostly because of the nude swimming, I presume...
