A rich councillor and his beautiful daughter with ordinary log floaters
Name of the movie could be "Two old lumberjacks" or something like that. Leader of the company arrives to a cabin of his workmen. He wants to go back in time and work in the same way as he used in his young days when he was an log floater. That's why he keeps his title in secret. His daughter Liisa comes to cook for the men and falls in love with the leader of the cabin (played by the famous singer Olavi Virta).
The main theme is a battle between culture of rich owners and habits of the workers. The movie consists lots of longing back to old days (one of the guys uses a word "modern" mockingly all the time). Ossi Elstelä as the councillor does a good job here so as Anneli Sauli who plays his daughter.
The story (as well as the love story) is basic stuff but keeps you interested one and half hours. A rapid and a bunch of log floaters were common subjects at the time in Finnish movies. The movie doesn't bring any new aspects on this genre. However the title song is a classic.
