Fragmented Finnish identity in portrait
10 May 2005 | by sedergrenSee all my reviews

Comical docudrama and a funny commentary about changes of life of Finnish family from 1950's to 1980's.

Presenting a typical Finnish family in typical industrial surrounding with the most typical hobbies and attitudes about life, sex and politics film gives a pretty quick look to changes of Finnish culture.

One of these Finnish films that are very difficult to understand for anyone who does not know local culture: feelings about skiing and other familiar Finnish sports, the hidden collectivity of local bars and serious drinking habits, marital development towards divorce, search for education or not, racist and nationalist ideas, difficult relation between Finland and Russia, and a sharp look to a long time president Kekkonen; all in 62 minutes.
