Not a good film
12 September 2010 | by granvik-843-513713See all my reviews

Very disappointed after all the rumors of this being the documentary film in Finland 2010.

It was sadly enough not much else than a bunch of pretentious random social porn. Saying actually much nothing about the Finnish man.

I was very bored about 'the realness' of this film, almost left in the middle of the film. You feel so blatantly manipulated to 'feel for em' during the film, that you actually feel sick after wards.

Go see Reindeer spotting instead, which actually is a great and touching documentary.

Very disappointed after all the rumors of this being the documentary film in Finland 2010.
