Sauna (Film) - 2008


The year is 1595, and the 25-year war between the Kingdom of Sweden and the Russian Empire is finally over. A new border is drawn through the contested area of Finland by an expedition consisting of agents of both Crowns. From the side of Sweden there are two brothers, Erik and Knut Spore, ethnic Finns who both seek recognition in their own way. Erik is an aging soldier who seeks to earn land for his family, while Knut is an enterprising scholar seeking a tenure in the University of Stockholm, intending to present a map of the previously unmapped Finnish lands as proof of his skills.

This film is a horror film but based around the actual event of the layout of the borderland of Sweden and Russia. The movie deals with the issue of paganism and Christianity as well.

This is one of my favorite films because it has Horror, Religion and History.

The soundtrack is beautiful as well.
