Lenin-setä asuu Venäjällä

[Uncle Lenin Lives in Russia]. FI 1987. D: Kanerva Cederström, Riikka Tanner. 16 mm. 57 min. Viewed at Cinema Orion, Helsinki (Kanerva Cederström), 20 Oct 2010. - A good 16 mm print with good colour. - Revisited the beginning of the documentary portrait of former Finnish Communists of the 1970s. The naive songs and slogans of the 1970s sound so parodic that they don't need commentary. This is also a coming-of-age story, of growing up from naivism.
