The film takes place in the snow-covered suburb Vuosaari of the Finnish capital Helsinki. The eight individual episodes are temporally intertwined and show partial overlaps. **** 1) Milla is a young woman who really wants to become famous. She applies as a singer, trying as a model, although she does not have the appropriate dimensions, and finally ends up in pornography. Her father is rather disinterested in her life. **** 2) The criminals Iiris and Make associate money shortage and addiction problems. Iiri's moody character not only makes her beat up Robert, but also makes a robbery. He hopes to pay his debts to the Russians. **** 3) The American Robert misses his family on a business trip, meets a prostitute and is beaten up by Make in the bathroom of a bar. **** 4) Lauri is a doctor and belongs to the "upper class" with his wife Sara. He is frustrated with the alienation from his wife and is having an affair with the household worker Viivi. When his wife finds out, there is a ...Written by
This powerful film is set a multi-cultural district of Finland that is home to many nationalities. This film follows several parallel stories one grey and cold winter week in a quest to find love and acceptance. In a world where societies expectations are high, and the pressures of every day life create a shroud of secrecy.
Naked Harbour has managed to bring out small glimpses of warmth and humanity. Moments that arouse those feelings of hope allowing the characters to connect with the audience. The vision of the director Aku Louhimies's, was for the viewers experience to be significant and therapeutic, leaving the viewer fragile in a unifying and healing way.
Viewing experience was so significant and unprecedented, that after the movie, I wanted to go to hug my loved ones, and that feeling was stronger than in a long time. I recommend this movie to everyone, who wants to feel.
