For our final meeting, Toni invited me his place and prepared beautiful Indian curry.
He even had some bottles of Japanese beers, I did not know that I could find Japanese beer in Finnish supermarket.
Then we watched Finnish film called “Mies vailla menneisyyttä”.
Until Toni mentioned him I hadn’t heard his name but now I know that Aki Kaurismäki, the director of the film is very popular among film lovers in Japan.
I really liked the film, its story, the actors and all. I found some similarities with Japanese classic movies and I like it. For instance there’s no too dramatic scene happening, mostly it’s quiet and less talk which is good for learning language.
I definitely will watch another films made by him.
It was such a great final meeting.
Through E1T1, I learned a lot, not only finnish language but the culture.
And I really am happy that Toni will be doing internship in Japan this summer.
I hope he will have good experience there and enjoy the life in Japan, and more than anything, what I told him during E1T1 will help him somehow.
This is my closing report!
Thank you very much for your helpful teaching Toni!
