Finsk blod, Svenskt hjärta / Ingen riktig Finne

Finnish Blood, Swedish HeartFinsk blod, Svenskt hjärta / Ingen riktig Finne / Finnisches Blut, Schwedisches Herz

Documentary, Finland / Sweden 2012, 90 Min.

“Finnish Rock” was the long-standing hallmark of guitarist Kai Latvalehto. But he does not actually consider himself 100 percent Finnish. Kai spent his childhood in Sweden, where his father worked as a “guest worker”. The car journey which the two of them now take to Gothenburg is no nostalgic tour through family history - it also unveils many details of the social situation of the Finnish minority in Sweden. Regularly interrupted by live song-recordings that lament the fate of immigrants, this highly emotional road movie explores the chasm between the two groups of citizens. The disclosure of family secrets simultaneously leads to a rapprochement between father and son, whom the road trip allows to voice their personal conflicts for the first time.
