STEAM OF LIFE

84 min. 2010, Finland (recorded in Saunas)

Directed by Joonas Berghäll ja Mika Hotakainen

Naked Finnish men in sauna tell very personal, very touching and hard stories, speaking straight from the heart. These are stories about love, birth, pleasure, death, friendship; about life itself. In all its simplicity the camera records the raw and rare beauty of Finnish landscapes, saunas and men all over the country. The documentary reveals men’s naked souls in an exceptionally intimate and poetic way.

ELUAUR

Režissöörid Joonas Berghäll ja Mika Hotakainen (filmitud saunades)

Soome mehed alasti saunas, jututeemad väga isiklikud ja kohati ka raskemeelsed. Need on lood armumisest, sünnitamisest, vallatlemisest, surmast. Sõnaga – elust enesest. Kaamera jäädvustab Soome maastike ürgset ja lihtsat ilu, saunu ja mehi kogu üle maa. Dokumentaarium avab meeste hingi eriti intiimsel ja poeetilisel viisil.
