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

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 :)

Oh, some movies that I forgot to add in my original list, but which are also my favourites (the director after the title of the movie):

The Terminator - James Cameron
Terminator 2: Judgment Day - James Cameron
Twister - Jan de Bont

When I went to watch Twister with my littlesister in one cinema of town Lappeenranta (oh no, in 1996 - almost 10 years ago!) we both were SURE that we are going to become meteorogists in the future and WILL experience some tornadoes LIVE someday! The bicycle trip to home after the cinema was such an experience, the movie made it magical! :D Well, both me and my littlesister have always been interested in weather phenomena - especially storms - so no wonder we loved Twister!
