Backwood Philosopher (2009)
(Havukka-Ahon Ajattelija)

Based on his most famous 1952 novel of the same name by Veikko Huovinen, Kari Väänänen directed this humorous film about the eccentric story teller and backwoods philosopher Konsta Pylkkänen and the time he spent as a guide to two university biologists doing research in eastern Finland.  Konsta Pylkkänen (Kai Lehtinen), is a rascal who lives by his wits and wiles - preferring to spend his time thinking deep thoughts rather than doing heavy labour.  These men develop a relationship that transcends differences in geography, class and education.
    Kari Väänänen has assembled a stellar supporting cast including Kati Outinen, and an excellent cinematographer, Timo Salminen, who makes the most of the glorious rural landscape near Kuhmo.
