On the day obstetric surgeon Saara turns 40, after architect husband Leo has shared an exuberant birthday bonk with her, she discovers a half-used packet of condoms in his guitar case: she'd like to know where the missing condoms went. The answer to that question is of course that he's been having an affair with a student, Tuuli. It doesn't take her long to identify Tuuli and discover that, in the evenings, she teaches a self-defense classes. She signs up for the class with a fake name, befriends her; seeing Tuuli showering after the first class, she's appalled by the relative youthfulness of the woman's body. She also moves out and starts living alone. Bit by bit, Saara worms her way into Tuuli's life. Partly by coincidence, partly on purpose, the two develop a close relationship. At the same time she is planning the best way to revenge her husband and his lover.Written by
who is the victim ? that is question who gives sense of movie. the fragile husband ? the cold powerful wife ? the young mistress ? innocent can be only the baby. so, a film like a labyrinth. no doors, no windows. shadow of Almodovar and crumbs of Bergman. a story and its plains. dark humor and slices of ambiguous fight. jealousy, refuges, empty friendship and survive. cruelty of revenge in spider way and two women as borders of circle. a film as catch. about snow and ice and need of certitudes and fall. about limits and image of the other. about lies as fermented feelings and slide of looks. series of shadows and complicated construction. happy-end as fruit of profound peace. silence from womb of strange war.
