Did You Know?


The story with its focus on a returning former outcast and his individual triumph over small minded village oppression / envy, by 'Maiju Lassila' was a pseudonym of Algot(h) Untola, a turn of the twentieth century playwright and latterly newspaper editor during this nation's civil war (1918-19), in which he actively supported the eventual losing - 'Red' (Social Democratic Party) - side: after his arrest (as a 'rebel) he was murdered on the transport ship that the victorious side ('Whites') were transporting him.

Bright folk tale
2 March 2006 | by MadFishSee all my reviews

Once again the atmosphere of pure joy and happiness totally takes the viewer in this story based on a folk play from 1912.

The raising star Martti Kuningas makes a good work as he plays a young miller who comes back to his old home and charms literally all the women in the village. The bright summer opens this funny story and surprisingly keeps its positive energy as the romantic tale gets closer to the final mess-up.

It's sad that the potential script wasn't made to a family movie because it really would have fitted in (and those are quite rare anyway)! Maybe a remake will come one day...
