I watched Valkoinen peura (1952) some years ago and was deeply impressed by beautifuly photographed landscape and simple but strong feeling of animism. It is regrettable that this master piece of horror is not widely known outside its home country.

Neitoperho (1997) ... A female version of William Wyler's The Collector. Psychopathic NEET girl (played by Leea Klemola) forces her way into middle aged woman's solitary house and confine the woman. Klemola performed mentaly unstable girl perfectly. I don't want to be her boyfriend!

My review is here.

Tuntematon sotilas (1955)

The best Finnish film ever made and one of the most successful as well.

Valkoinen peura is not on DVD even in Finland. And yes it’s a fantastic film!

If you like Neitoperho, I can recommend another film from the same female director called Pelon maantiede (2000). It’s on DVD in here, and for once the DVD has English subs! Here's more info:

Karvat (1974)

Haven't seen this one yet but should be an interesting case from what I've heard.
