Trivia

Literal English translation of Finnish title = 'Circle (= boxing / ring?) of Dreams'; which is more revealing of the film's intention, and little to do with 'Blue Corner', which is only the eventual renaming of the lost boxing venue of the man protagonist. See more »

Fine to watch something from Finland
16 March 2003 | by MirkitoSee all my reviews

I've seen this movie in a Film Festival, and it's full of stories that aren't showed properly, I mean, it should have more editing than anything else. Actors are great so does the music. Rythim is not the best around. So if you're in the mood for a slow drama, see this movie.
