A story from the up-north wilderness!
14 January 2007 | by OxwallSee all my reviews

Well, I live in the far up north and I know what snow is like. This is what snow is like, this is how our accent's like, this is how our style's like. Oh really, is it? Well, I'll try not to entirely spoil the true secrets about the bohemian lifestyle of Laponians, but the movie was a great sum up. Lennar Jähkel is a great up-north actor, that's for sure. However, I couldn't drop his character from "Jägarna" when I saw this movie, plus my friend's babbling on about this movie from high school (when it first was released) couldn't stop echoing through my head. However, fun movie with not such interesting plot, but what could be interesting when you're in the middle of nowhere, really?
