Hammerman Ikon Film Guide

Miesten vuoro (Steam of Life)
Director: Joonas Berghäll, Mika Hotakainen

A very affecting documentary about Finnish men, who famously don't share their emotions. However, when this group of men go to sauna, they strip all of their clothes and all of their inhibitions and one by one open up to the camera. They talk about loves and losses and share some heartbreaking personal stories. A minimalistic film which is beautifully shot and lit.
