I've been there! I've been to Finland... visited at the height of Summer Solstice, when the sun never sets and the drinking never ceases... and this is Finland! And watching this film, now you've been there, too. It's so dark and foreboding throughout winter, the only way you can numb the boredom and depression is with drink. And then the sun finally returns, so the appropriate activity is to celebrate and drink heavily. This film might be a little cruel and over-reaching in its prejudice, but still, I think most Finns will say, "Ayeyuh... thar we be..."

Dear Lord, G Bob, that was sublime, or ridiculous, or both, or something. I used to style myself a connoisseur of bad music, but I got nothing on you.
Impossible to pick her greatest performance. Probably either this (wait for the sublime whistling) or this.
