| He's a Lumberjack and He's OK
This is a lovely story of two people, virtually strangers, forging a new life for themselves in the wilderness. Anni is the headstrong daughter of a prosperous businessman. Veikko had been a mere lumberjack, but is now a wounded veteran of the 1939 Winter War when the Soviet Union invaded Finland. As a veteran, he is entitled to homestead a farm in the woods off in the boondocks and they proceed to do so. It is relentlessly hard work, and Veikko's health is uncertain.

According to the writer/director, the film's title in Finnish translates to "Our Own Land". This phrase (like our "40 Acres and a Mule") was the promise made to veterans, that they would get land of their own, and many new farms were homesteaded in this period.

The acting is solid, and the lead actress is radiantly convincing as a woman in love. This is a solid period piece, well worth seeing.
