BORROWING THE FUSE (Dir. Mikko Roiha)
|Borrowing the Fuse is a story about the boys from Liperi and their immense journey to Joensuu, two hapless persons` adventure around the vast expanses of Finland.
Ihalainen and Vatanen ride their mare while Finnhits are blaring out of the radio, there’s a pig roasting in the oven and at home a woman awaits who you will share your grave with.
A mute nation is seeking the countryside back from the city.
