Who wouldn't have listened to Apulanta in Finland in the 90's? So did also I. I fell in love fully to some of their songs as: Ilona, Maanantai and Odotus and they still sound good to my ears. However I lost my interest after Heinola 10 album which was published 2001 and their newer albums are more stranger to me although I haven't been able to avoid everything and all songs are somehow familiar to me. For the last years I have barely listened to the whole band ,but every now and then it's nice to sink into a nostalgic state of mind and listen to their old production.
I got so excited after hearing that there is coming a movie about the band though I don't have much trust on Finnish film production. However we finally had time to go to see the film yesterday and the film surprised me completely. It was better as I waited and even the actors were quite good and one of them sounded so authentic that I started to doubt is the voice dubbed. A touching, sensitive period piece which brought to mind the years when I was a teen. The movie wasn't only the story about the band, it was the story about that time when it was a deep recession-time in Finland and the people were depressed and some ended up committing suicide.... I can't say how well the movie works to those who don't know the band or the elder people, but to me it works because the band was so big word when I was young.
