Storyline

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 lament

Breathtaking story, non-linear narrative, beautiful scenes
19 February 2012 | by mohamedelfatatrySee all my reviews

This film is simply remarkable: beautiful scenes, deep and non-linear narrative, and elaborate characters. The largest hall at the movie theater was packed, and I could hear some of the audience gasping for air during the film's intense moments which appear with regularity. The variety of characters allows you to relate to one or more of them and evokes real emotions. It takes you through a wide range: happiness, sadness, jealousy, anger, love, humor. After enjoying breathtaking visuals and touching stories throughout the film, the plot converges to perhaps the most important topic of our age: love (and how to find it). I was able to completely enjoy this movie (without subtitles) even though I understand very little Finnish. And the soundtrack: Robbie Williams - Feel is just perfect!
