108' - 1973 - Drama - Dialogue: Sami, Finnish
Director: Rauni Mollberg Composer: Hannu Sinnemäki With: Maritta Viitamäki, Pauli Jauhojärvi, Aimo Saukko, Milja Hiltunen
An earthy, naturalistically erotic and blood-soaked tale of young Martta's ill-fated affair with Oula, a womanizing reindeer herdsman in the Finnish Lapland of the late 1940s. When the 19-year-old girl turns up pregnant, her alcoholic father is outraged and a series of tragic events follows.
