The Finnish film-industry has several severe problems; one of them, and maybe the biggest, in my opinion, is that some directors try too much. They believe that mixing all genres into one makes a good film, e.g. Hymypoika, Game Over, Kuutamolla, the Levottomat-trilogy. This often turns the film into saucy pieces of junk. This film on the other hand has a straight direction. It doesn't have any nudity (only one sex-scene which reveled almost no skin, which is odd for a Finnish movie), it concentrates strictly on the plot(which most Finnish films lack), it has a beginning, a middle part and an end. And most importantly, it has working actors. The film turns out to be a working piece of art(because art is what it is). I simply loved the snorri-cam-parts and the beautiful Finnish landscapes. Two Big Thumbs Up for Director Simo Halinen!!
