(it) wrote: A Finnish horror film! Well, a glacially slow, mildly disturbing Finnish horror film that spends so much effort on character development and technically flawless cinematography that it doesn't have time for little details like being scary. In fact, it seems to barely have time for an ending despite a relatively short run time and a WHOLE lot of building up. There should have been something after all that rather than a rushed quickie that lacked the kind of style and attention to detail that drags the rest of the movie down into a murky (but pretty!) impenetrability worse than the swamp in which most of it is set. The climax is not at all "stunning" and it's only startling because, after all that plodding along and meticulous attention to detail, we get a BOO! ending. Gimme a break.In all fairness, Sauna does a brilliant job of storytelling. At times, viewers will certainly be drawn into the drama unfolding between old warrior Erik and his scientist brother Knut. The acting here is top-notch with the exception of a bit of scenery chewing engaged in by a few of the actors with small roles as townspeople. The director, costumer and writers have clearly gone to tremendous pains to recreate for us the look, feel and attitudes of late 16th century Karelia. So much so, in fact, that they often seem to forget entirely that they're making a horror film. They largely drop subtle hints throughout the historical drama about what's going on, but they miss the mark with their reveal... which is spoken about in scenes split between three of the main characters instead of being SHOWN to us. All of this visual obsessiveness, and then the characters talk us through the climax. The final horror scene is anticlimactic after we've been TOLD the truth.Too much spookiness to pass as a historical drama, too little to make it as a horror film, Sauna is likely doomed to inhabit forever that limbo (hint hint hint) of forgotten films that nobody ever really loved. That and the fact that it's essentially the movie Event Horizon sans action sequences, set on the border of 16th century Russia and Finland. Was anybody really waiting for this?
