TFF: A former couple talk with each other for the first time after their separation and one short telephone call embodies their years together.

AA: Tulivuori by Lauri-Matti Parppei belongs to the difficult tradition of "La Voix humaine" of Jean Cocteau. Here it is about a couple who has separated a while ago. The woman has left him, and now she would want to meet him again, but he refuses.

She mentions the volcano Yellowstone. If it would erupt, there would be nuclear winter. With whom would you want to spend the last moments of your life?

Tender and intense, well acted by Kaisa Koskenkorva and Ilari Pulli. The man is mostly only heard as a voice on the telephone. An original interpretation of an eternal theme.
