Christopher Webster [Celluloid 01.08.10] Finland post apocalyptic movie trailer news

Written, produced and directed by Finnish newcomer Esa Jussila, Storm in an Hourglass looks like a thoughtful post-apocalyptic feature drama set around a devastating world war. Of course we have no synopsis so I'm totally guessing here. Any readers from Finland in the house?

The trailer may play a little slowly, but based on some fantastic cinematography and acting, I'm looking forward to seeing more from the film.

Storm in an Hourglass stars Kuisma Väänänen, Onni Kaskinen, Artturi Rostén, Jere Ritari and Hilla Sofia Pándy and will be released by TR Productions later in 2010.

Trailer after the break. Thanks to Avery for the heads up.

I'm sure that finnish people would survive any kind of apocalypsis. I think that they are the 4th country in fire weapons per habitant (many many gunshots there lately, bu the way). Plus, if they won the Winter War against russians, they could kick zombie asses easyly and happily. Specially in winter...

Hi, and thank you for the kind words.

I'm the writer-director of the film, and I thought I'd give a little heads-up about it. We shot the movie last year, and it's now in late stages of post production, with only minor sound tweaks and pieces of the score to do. It's due to premiere 8.5. here in Finland, though it's not a wide release, since the movie is extremely low-budget.
The story of the movie is mostly not set during a war itself, in fact only the opening scene is purely about the war, with rest of the movie being post-war, the protagonist being a deserter. I'm a huge fan of post-apocalypse films, and I guess this is my attemp to contribute something meaningful to the genre.

There's also a new trailer out, which I personally prefer, and it comes with subtitles.
