The River2001

  • 3.6
Critically acclaimed THE RIVER flows between a dozen diverse, well-etched characters in a small Finnish town, including a clandestine gay couple, a factory worker and his adulturious wife and a suicidal young mother. It is a rich and insightful look at ordinary lives unfolding over the short time span of one autumnal Saturday morning.

I quite liked parts of this movie. I think it would have worked better with about half as many characters, so that they could be developed more.

Well. Crying in the middle of the day is tough. A very good movie. Covers a lot of crises I have been through. Made me feel the again. What a great movie.

Captivating tale of separate lives in vignettes bound together in a moment of time.
