Finland - The land of poor productions
1 December 2007 | by xagguratSee all my reviews

The screenplay of this movie was based on a novel by Kata Kärkkäinen, former Playboy model who was accepted to the Finnish Mensa society last year (2006). This would mean that Kata's IQ must be at least 131. I've never read the novel but I watched the film from the television, and must say that it was a terrible, torturing way to spend 100 or so minutes (with commercials) of my life. Perhaps there's something wrong with the screenplay or directing, but Kata's high IQ doesn't show in this movie.

At the turn of the century there was a national hype about the new golden era in the Finnish movie-making. I strongly feel that the promise was not delivered. Actually, anything they made back in 20th century is far better than Minä ja Morrison.

Finland isn't much more melancholic compared to Sweden, but as a Finn I must admit that the level of quality in film production is much better in Sweden, although lately I've seen evidence of their descent as well. After all chance of having another Ingmar Bergman is low. Which is sad.
