Tale of a Lake is a film about the thousands of lakes that Finland is known for. It takes the viewers on an unprecedented adventure, ranging from the crystal clear springs all the way to the basins of the big lakes. It opens a whole new world of underwater nature for the viewers, and tells about the many old tales and beliefs in the land of thousands of lakes. The story of the film is told through tales that are based around the myths, legends and old beliefs that are part of the Finnish mythology.Written by
The video quality of the film is excellent throughout. I'd never seen such clear underwater footage from a Finnish lake before. I found it interesting to hear the Finnish folklore tales of the lakes and their inhabitants, but I would like to have seen a little more human interaction.
On the negative side, I found the music score to be tiring in the extreme. It practically never stops, and rather than hearing the amazing occasional sounds of the vast nature one is subjected to this never-ending pompous pseudo-classical muzak. A huge missed opportunity. For me it ruined the movie and I won't be recommending it, sadly.
