  • Steam of Life

    2010. Finland. Directed by Joonas Berghäll, Mika Hotakainen. With Timo Aalto, Martti Ahman, Pekka Ahonen. A dozen Finnish men are asked to tell about the hardships in their lives; they talk to each other and to the filmmakers while basking in saunas of every shape, location and size. Slowly, quietly, as the film moves from one unique sauna to another, their stories envelop the viewer just as the steam soothes the storytellers. Remarkable tales of struggle and redemption emerge in the first documentary to represent Finland in the Best Foreign Language Film category at the Academy Awards. In Finnish; English subtitles. 81 min.
