Naked Finnish men sit in the sauna and speak straight from their heart. In the warmth of rusty stoves these men cleanse themselves both physically and mentally.
The film travels through Finland and the camera joins men in many different saunas to let us hear touching stories about love, death, birth and friendship. In all of its simplicity camera records the landscapes, saunas and men in almost magical pictures. The presence of the characters and the depth of the emotion reaches the limit where it is almost intolerable for the viewer to watch. This film reveals the naked souls of these men exceptionally intimately and creates a poetic portrayal of Finnish men.</big>
Saw it yesterday! It was really really really beautiful. Real men talking and telling their life stories. It's stories about friendship and love, loss and death, really everyday, but so true and incredible. Some were hilarious and incredible, some really touching and unbelieveble.
I think even the less you know about Finland and Sauna-culture, the more you will get out of this film! If you get a chance to see it, See it!
