I found this film entirely by accident when I tried to download a torrent of another film with the same name.
A quick google search showed that the film is rather loosely based on the life of Finnish poet, Lauri Viita, whom I'd never heard of.
Plot is in the vein of Pollock and A Beautiful Mind, and the production values are on par with both of those films. Stunning cinematography and art direction. It took me a few minutes to realize that the lead actress was playing two roles - that of the poet's grown daughter, and that of his wife during the flashbacks. This is the first Finnish film I've seen and it's made me want to search for more.
