Normally taciturn Finnish men, bare their bodies, and metaphorically their souls, in several different sauna settings.Thus we discover that they are are really all too human. Something that their body shape has already made all too clear. The stories are interesting,if often gloomy. The saunas are entertainingly diverse in nature, and ingenuity. A bear provides one scene to lift the mood. The film could do with more such moments. The scenery is evocative. Cold,white and distant at times, yet it makes you want to explore it, as long as you are well protected from its bite. A hot sauna is just what is needed to warm yourself after such a trip. I guess this is why emotional landscapes can be laid bare in the steam as well.
