CFF Movie: Pohjalaisia (1925)

Poh­jalaisia, a silent movie restored and reis­sued with a new music track in 2012, is based on the play by Art­turi Järvilu­oma who was also the screen­writer. The story, set in the 19th cen­tury, revolves around the hot-blooded Jussi, a young farmer, and his friend Antti and their brushes with the local nimis­mies (sher­iff) and the häjyt (bad­men). The film, shot on loca­tion on the plains of Ostro­both­nia, con­veys a good sense of its unique land­scape. Both Järvilu­oma and the direc­tor, Jal­mari Lah­den­suo were from Ostro­both­nia and the film suc­cess­fully expresses a feel­ing of the true spirit of the province.
