Trivia

Reeta Turtianen, playing 'Reeta Geisha' designed all the geisha outfits, including her own: most characters' outfits came from "flea markets" (and 'Annis') and "altered to suit our needs" where necessary. (Anna Elo: costume, wardrobe and production design) See more »

I cannot verbalize my disappointment
25 November 2017 | by yxoaSee all my reviews

Seeing trailers and waiting the movie come out, I was thrilled. Finally, it seemed, Finland got it's first major film based somehow on Japanese culture. As a total anime wreck who wouldn't be waiting something as absurd as samurai story located in Finnish archipelago?

And surely it delivered in terms of absurd.

There was little story to follow - if any. There wasn't any character development and if that was somehow to be punished later on, it didn't give viewer enough bone to gnaw. Scenery was nice from time to time, but the lack of proper directing, camera work, editing, screen writing and acting it did not rescue.

If "Seven Samurai" was a huge disappointment, this sure won that race. Would not recommend.
