4.0 out of 5 stars really nice international movie, 26 Sep 2004
This review is from: The Cuckoo [DVD] [2003] (DVD)
After dinner we all moved into the living room for some idiots idea to watch a strange movie they had picked up called the Cuckoo. The back cover suggested little to be excited about so I sat down for what I expected to be a rather heavy plod of slow deep conversation. I was wrong.
The movie starts fast and doesn't give hints as to where it's going, the three main actors, two soldiers (one finnish and one russian) and a lapplander do not share a language so blather on in their own languages in the hope of communication, we as an audience see the humourous miscommunication in the subtitles and there are some really great comic situations as well.
The film is visually beautiful and full of life and essentially about people hearing what they want to hear regardless of the language it's in, by the people speaking different languages this is highlighted. the actors are great and really flesh out their respective cultures well.
Overall a good buy for those looking for a good foreign movie from the chilly north.
