The Living Room of the Nation / Kansakunnan olohuone

Year
2009
Country
Finland
Duration
74’
Director
Jukka Karkkainen

“The Living Room of the Nation” opens a portrait-like view into six Finnish living rooms. The film is a story of changes, loneliness, responsibilities and the unavoidable passing of time. The main characters are common Finnish people in different phases of life. Each of them is looking for something: human closeness, understanding or acceptance. The scale of events varies, but even as small and familiar they position the characters into dramatic situations. These individual everyday experiences converge into a sensitive and momentarily surreal story of human life.
