| NOT as good as the book (of course)
It`s always the same thing when you read the book first and then see the film. Very rarely the movie manages to get to the level of the book, and this doesnt happen here either. Acting is pretty decent and especially delightful is the performance of P.P.Petelius as the father. The Plot seems to jump allover but some scenes really gets to the atmosphere of each age. So the whole film seems to be more about the development of social structure in Finland through the 60`s, 70`s, 80`s and 90`s rather than about the persons and their individual dreams and nightmares (like in the book). In the end it`quite superficial but not necessarily bad movie.
