A Sluggard and His Son addresses gender roles and identities in relation to the life of three-year-old Aapeli’s father. After spending his life amongst effeminate boys, he is now a father and a house-owner.
AA: The slobbish guy has not followed his life lesson of never marrying, never owning a house, never having kids. He makes a big deal of his ineptitude. Or is it a show of grandiloquent self-deprecation? Shot in the wintertime around a omakotitalo, a detached private old house in the countryside. Dad and son build an ice bandy field on their own yeard. A discourse on masculinity. And perhaps on arrested development. But most probably it's all a joke.
