Finnish movies


On this topic I'll be shortly introducing classics of Finnish film (and personal favorites).


Due it's 50th anniversary, I start with Käpy selän alla (="Cone under back", also known as Under Your Skin).
It is a youth drama about four city youngsters' camping trip. The film was very liberal (1966) with then-infamous sex scenes and dialogue, as well as the method of filming: much of it was improvised by the young actors (who no doubt were better in touch with the subject than the director).
Director Mikko Niskanen is one of the most important in Finnish film history and I may present other works from him later.

Only clip I can find is this video with an iconic song (which defined style for 70's leftist protest songs here). I'm not sure but this may be the opening of the film.

]The White Reindeer is the biggest Finnish classic of horror (though I'd call it "supernatural thriller" rather than actual horror). It's one of the few Finnish films that got some recognition abroad, including only Finnish film to win Golden Globe.
