Ovia ja lukkoja / Doors & Locks

FI 2011. PC: Blue Blanket / Elokuvaosuuskunta Siperia. P: Matti Reinikka. D+SC: Dave Berg, Elina Reinikka. DP: Dave Berg. M: Marzi Nyman. S: Janne Jankeri. CAST: Elina Hietala, Lotta Kaihua, Santtu Karvonen, Hanna Vahtikari. 73 min. A digital file from Elokuvaosuuskunta Siperia with English subtitles. Viewed at Lapinsuu, Sodankylä (Midnight Sun Film Festival, New Finnish Films) 15 June 2011.

Presenters: Liselott Forsman, Anssi Mänttäri. In the presence of Dave Berg, Elina Reinikka, Elina Hietala, Hanna Vahtikari, and Matti Reinikka.

The first public screening of a new Finnish feature movie made by new talent. They, too, just made the movie without going through the usual long official obstacle course.

The film-makers cry out loud, and their voice is fresh and original. It is about three young women coming to terms with devastating crises, and a tongue-tied janitor. There is a powerful psychic charge in the movie. Everything is at least off-balance, and sometimes helter skelter.

Ovia ja lukkoja is an experimental film with an original sense of sound and image. The talented artists will be worth following. Visual quality: heavy digital video look.

This definitely sounds like it would be worth watching. Do you know where I could watch the movie? Also, who were the actors and actresses? Anyone I would know?
