Self-taught philosopher Konsta Pylkkänen guides a group of researchers through Finland's Kainuu wilderness in the hopes of having a "sinistä ajatusta", idea out of the blue. While firing upon a hybrid of the hazel grouse and the western capercaillie, kinds of birds, he indeed makes a scientific discovery.
Author Veikko Huovinen died two days before he was supposed to see the final version of the movie. Huovinen was very interested of the project and even visited the filming location in summer 2009 and gave his "blessing" on the makers of the movie. See more »
For TV release, the film was edited into three-part mini-series. See more »
A very good book turned to a movie by a very good director and excellent actors but the result is a failure. What went wrong?
The only explanation I can think of is that I and the director have understood the story from very different starting points. Casting is brilliant but only theoretically. These usually unbeatable actors simply don't fit in their roles. I have seen them acting wonderfully but now comes this disaster.
Only the cameramen have done their job perfectly. Beautiful nature, the desert with its inhabitants is pictured beautifully.
I would recommend a better focus in choosing the actors next time. Never mind how well these actors usually perform, now they are simply in unsuitable roles.
