Steam of Life

DA_Selection_2010_4

Directed by Joonas Berghäll and Mika Hotakainen. Finland, Sweden 2010, 84 min.

Naked Finnish men sit in the sauna and speak straight from their heart. In the warmth of rusty stoves these men cleanse themselves both physically and mentally. Steam of Life takes us on a sauna tour of Finland where the most touching reflections about love, death, birth and friendship are shared in sincere whispers. With the utmost simplicity and exceptional intimacy, the filmmakers capture the vast Finnish landscapes and the naked souls of these vulnerable storytellers, creating a poetic portrayal of Finnish men.

Selected by Planete Doc Review Warsaw.
