Storyline

A female fashion model Anni Stark (played by Tiina Björkman) takes leave from the fashion business and goes to Finland's Lappland (a wilderness region in Northern Finland, better known as the home of Santa Claus) for a vacation. Little does she know that there's a totally lunatic bunch of local hillbillies living in a nearby farmhouse. The plot thickens as one of the residents begins to harass Anni, who is left alone in the wilderness with only her dog to protect her. Too bad for her that her dog turns out to have divided loyalties.. Written by Tomi Nylund <wizard@ee.oulu.fi>

Kuutamosonaatti is probably the best horror movie from Finland. It's full of black humor, urban city life vs farm-yard. It tells about young model who is in burn out, and goes to relaxing vacation middle of nowhere. She meets there original country people, family where is old mom (äiree) and 2 old sons (Sulo n' Arvo). Sulo is handicap and lives in basement, n' Arvo meet the model and fall in love. His probably even more insane than Sulo (who lives in basement). Sulo run away from the cellar n' Arvo drink alcohol from his sorrow of love. N' then the horror is ready to begin.

Movie is glorious pastime about Finnish life style. Where the country life and urban city meets dramatic.
