The director of the movie after the title.

Koirankynnen leikkaaja (Dog Nail Clipper) - Markku P?l?nen
Amazon - Mika Kaurism?ki
Emmauksen tiell? (On the Road to Emmaus) - Markku P?l?nen
Kivenpy?ritt?j?n kyl? (The Last Wedding) - Markku P?l?nen
Umur - Kai Lehtinen
Sinnui yauman (A Chinese Ghost Story) - Siu-Tung Ching
Sen to Chihiro no kamikakushi (Spirited Away) - Hayao Miyazaki
Thelma & Louise - Ridley Scott

Hee - five movies by Finnish directors in my list, and three by Markku P?l?nen, the best director in the world IMO. You should see at least Koirankynnen leikkaaja, it is the most beautiful and moving film I've ever seen. :D

It's about time a thread like this was started....

-mulholland drive
-stir of echoes
-last house on the left
-city of lost children
-the shining
-fast times at ridgemont high
-the thin red line

Just thought of French Kiss. ( Can we add when we remember another one? )

Can't believe I forgot the YAYA movie!

Love this thread and am really enjoying reading everyone's opinions.

Good going Gimpy!

Ninnu, I would love to see your favorite movie. I think I will probably have to order it. Don't think I've seen it at Blockbuster. I would like to know what it is about, as the translation title "Dog Nail Clipper" is very intriguing. How's about a little hint?

There are so many movies to choose from so I'll keep going:

Deliverance (very wholesome)
Talented Mr. Ripley (also wholesome)
A Clockwork Orange
Teen Wolf (I WANT A KEG OF BEER...and these)
Team America: World Police
Wonder Boys
American Beauty
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
Field of Dreams
Indiana Jones trilogy

Biggest Tearjerker: Terms of Endearment (it was Jack Nicholson's newly found compassion that did it for me)
Best WWII movie: Bridge on the River Kwai (screw Shaving Ryan's Privates)
Best Vietnam movie: Full Metal Jacket (Apocalypse Now too weird, Oliver Stone is a d*ckweed so screw Platoon)
Movies that best use music: Rushmore, Boogie Nights, Magnolia, Grosse Pointe Blank, The Graduate

enough from me for now

Hi terri* - I really recommend this movie! If you want to get Dog Nail Clipper, but can't order it anywhere, I may buy it here and send it to you? There are English subtitles in the DVD I've got, but I'm afraid the movie is only in Finnish in the VHS. About the tale:

It is a story of a young war veteran Mertsi Veps?l?inen, located in the countryside of the 1950's Finland. Mertsi had been shot to his head in the war and thus he's disabled, having a brain injury. His friend tells about his dog Sakke, who has too long dew claws and jokingly gives Mertsi a permit to clip Sakke's nails so they wont get broken and bleed. Mertsi becomes worried and wants to save Sakke, and during his journey in order to find the dog he ends up working in a logging site. The idea of the film is to tell about Finland, which is now lost in the history, but where people still cared about each other though they had to work hard to pay the war debts. The beautiful snowy winter sceneries and the logging site with horses and the authentic paraphernalia look like a window into Finland's past - and I was especially moved bc of the warmth and goodness of the people in the film, as everyone took care of disabled Mertsi, though he couldn't work very well bc of his injury.

Here is the link to the official homepage of Koirankynnen leikkaaja:

Sorry - only in Finnish, but you may click "Galleria" and watch the trailer "Traileri" there. Both "iso" and "pieni" are the same trailer, but of different file sizes.

There are also photos from the film in Galleria, under the titles "Mertsi ja Sakke" and "Still kuvia elokuvasta". You can see a larger photo by clicking the picture.

Here are also two links, where you can find short descriptions of the movie in English:

I hope you found this info helpful,

Ninnu :)
