A 14-year-old video enthusiast is so caught up in film fantasy that he can no longer relate to the real world, to such an extent that he commits murder and records an on-camera confession for his parents.

An Iranian man deserts his French wife and her two children to return to his homeland. Meanwhile, his wife starts up a new relationship, a reality her husband confronts upon his wife's request for a divorce.
I spent about 15 years of my childhood and teenage living in the municipality of Suomussalmi where this movie was filmed. I also know two of the three main characters of the story, one of them being my former friend. So what else could I do than praise this movie? I bet nothing.
Still I honestly can say that it's a great story about what can it be to live in a region with almost 30% unemployment rate and which can provide future for only a tiny part of the young people. People are aging and all the young adults are moving away after they've finished their high school. I bet this film offers a lot to especially young people everywhere.
Watch it, a rumour tells that it can be seen in Finnish tv soon. :)
