Four-part TV-movie "Rauta-Aika" is based on Kalevala, but with lot's of changes. Kaleva is Finland's national epic, whichs ancient poetry is filled with spells, incantations, myths and heroic lore. Making of this film costed at least two milloin euros, calling to some sources maybe even more. The movie can seem often very artistic for people that are used to watch Hollywood and USA productions, but every detail in "Rauta-Aika" has it's purpose. Artistic style also makes this movie mysterious and the ambience of beeing at "ancient north" grows very strong.
