  1. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film The Sounds of Kaleva

    The first half is a straight, somewhat dry documentary chronicling the journey of a 19th century Finnish folklorist across Estonia to gather ancient songs and tales, the director popping up onscreen now and then to explain things. Then, as if relieved to have gotten the facts out of the way, he says All right, documentary section over, let's get down to business - and it swerves into very strange territory.
