Among them is 22-year-old Heidi Andersson, three times a world champion. Here is a varied life. One day in the forest with the other lumberjacks, the next she is in the big city modelling bridal gowns. She hunts moose with her mother and talks about boys with her father.

Popular in North Korea.

A slow pace documentary that will intrigue the viewer. Heidi (the arm wrestler) has an appearance far from what one imagines. At first sight it is hard to comprehend the fact that she is a world champion arm wrestler. She is more of the nurse/teacher type of person.

As the movie goes by her life is made understandable to the viewer. The scenery around her village is very beautiful and peaceful, a true place for meditation. At some stage in most peoples life i believe all would like to spend some time in the village Solitude.

One must not be of Nordic or even western descent to enjoy this documentary. This film was awarded "Best Documentary" at the 10th Pyongyang (North Korean) film festival.

If you are hesitating in the video store rent this one, you will not be disappointed.
