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
Breathtaking documentary of Finnish lakes and those whose life depends on it. 'Järven tarina' takes audience to trip for place, which haven't seen camera before. No-one has filmed Finnish lakes like this before.
On the other hand, if you are interested in Finnish mythology, this is your film too. Narrators (Samuli Edelmann) voice is calming and the stories of ancient people in Finland makes documentary a bit more interesting.
Long story short: Beautiful Finnish nature, specially lakes, with amazing landscapes on a different seasons. Warning! This documentary might get you more interested in Finnish extraordinary nature. But trust me, it's worth it. Any time of the year.
