“The best sauna movie anyone’s ever likely to see.” - Variety
Steam of Life (Miesten vuoro) was yesterday chosen to represent Finland in Oscar Awards (Best Foreign Language Film). Spot on. This documentary let’s men talk about their lives and emotions in the most holy place, the Finnish sauna. The picture drawn is both accurate and touching, even in the trailer.
