On April 30th we had our 8th meeting. We decided to watch a new Finnish movie called ‘Big Game’. It is a movie about the president of United States ending up in Lapland and about a Finnish boy who tries to live up to his father’s expectations. Compared to the other Finnish movies, this is actually a good one. Samuel L. Jackson is the president and some other American actors are also in the movie. Therefore the movie is partly in English and partly in Finnish. In my opinion the movie gives quite a harsh image of the Finnish: ‘You have to be tough in Finland’ says the boy. Oh well, I kind of question that statement.
However, it was a great movie to watch and I would recommend it. Just please make sure to not be mistaken that all the Finns should know how to hunt or that we live in the woods.
