Set within the Lapp nation of northern Finland, the surroundings is breathtaking, made much more so by the isolation of the area. A way of pure solitude is underscored by a slow-moving dialogue interspersed with lengthy silences, and the connection between nature and the dialogue is underscored because the younger Milka recites poetry whereas out within the countryside. The destiny of Milka and her mom, nonetheless, is linked to the choice that Ojanen makes on the finish.
