Finnish sauna culture is a place for cleansing the body and mind. She is a holy place, it should not curse, speak loudly, or even to talk about anything in dispute. On this point the film uses. Photographed him mostly men, which tell the sad story of their lives, usually.
If they are alone they tell it to the camera. If you are with friends, they tell this to them. Tears streaming down with sweat. Destroyed families, broken dreams, loneliness. The sauna is at once a refuge, and the confessional. When the person is with you in the sauna and there is no way to escape. Both of you stuck in the hot little room, and they all become empathic. Although supposedly not allowed to talk about except the weather, the stories are told in the film are heartbreaking. Long subjects are men who are not in contact with their families, for those reasons and others, and they talk about it. The camera does not interfere, she stands on the tripod in a small room and used furniture. Participants do not seem aware of it at all. The film is very aesthetic, Finland is spectacular and the film do not forget this moment.
Photography, like sauna, a position strong sense of calm. No matter what things and how much it hurts. But, with all the sensitivity, photography, people, various saunas, the film is not uniform in its class. There are fascinating stories that immediately follow are stories that only want to be over. It's boring at times, does not hold all of his 80 minutes, though very worth staying until the end, the surprising exception. Maybe next time I'll stay more than two minutes in the sauna, but it really depends on the story tell me there.
