A Truly Magnificent Movie
19 January 2020 | by jukkaisemiSee all my reviews

Amazingly beautiful, amazingly touching. I am male, 59 years of age and do not cry very often. And yet my tears were pouring. Antti J. Jokinen has definately made his best movie so far. The cast is excellent, but Laura Birn as Helene Schjerfbeck is magical. Do not miss this!!
