    Title translates to something like Pine cone under the back. (As in human back) 2 years 8 months ago

    I was pretty sure I wouldn't like the movie, but figured to check it out just for the website's sake. It's though of being an old Finnish classic, but I thought it's probably outdated film from a time when there were practically any films about young people in Finland.
    But boy was a wrong! It's an amazing film. It's about 4 youngster who go camping in Finland and therefore go into an almost 2 hours of plotless nothingness. The film doesn't have any clear goal, nor does it seem to give any kind of lessons or morals. It's just a film about young people walking and talking all edited together. And because of that it's actually pretty interesting to watch.
    I can definitely recommend anyone to watch the film. Also would say that the English title (Skin, Skin), is pretty awful. Although I couldn't translate "Käpy selän alla" to English either so perhaps it's as good as one can get.

    Voyeuristic, modernist, aimless.
