"It's going quite well at the moment for Finnish films," Bergroth says. "And I think the younger film makers are maybe getting more brave, they are taking over new genres. They are trying to make horror films or comedies and even fantasy films. And we have this very long reputation of being serious and big drama people and I think this is very healthy for the industry that we have different genres."
"When I started to think about the story, I already had pictures in my mind where it would be set, so it comes very naturally of course because I am Finnish and I know these settings and landscapes, and I wanted to have that isolated feeling," Bergroth said.
