Skin Finland 1966 | 89 min | OV | | FF 2006

rated for 0 + years
A dreamy summer breeze of a film about two student couples holidaying on a remote Finnish lake. It is a sensitive and equally vigorous coming of age-portrait in the fabled 60's and the struggles with problems and inhibitions so typical of that generation, despite the surprisingly open sex scenes. The pristine landscape is a nostalgic reminder of things past for any Finland fan.
