The Hyderabad Film Club is screening a Finnish movie Mother Of Mine (Aideista Parhain), at Sarathi Studios, on 12th September. The movie will begin at 6:30pm.

Mother Of Mine was directed by Klaus Haro in 2005. The film received good reviews from the Finnish press, and was selected to be Finland's nominee for the Academy Award for the Best Foreign Language Film, at the 78th Academy Awards. The film is based on a novel by Heikki Hietamies.

The cast includes Topi Majaniemi as Eero, Marjaana Maijala as Eero's mother, Maria Lundqvist as Signe, Michael Nyquist as Hjalmar, and Esko Salminen as old Eero.

During World War II, more than 70,000 Finnish children were evacuated to neutral Sweden. For many, it was an adventure; and for others, especially the very young, it was a tragedy. The latter returned to Finland after the war, not knowing their parents, and speaking only Swedish.

The film starts in the present, as Eero (Esko Salminen), a Finn in his 60s, visits his aged mother, Kirsti (Aino-Maija Tikkanen). He has just been to Sweden for the funeral of a woman called Signe, and coerces his mother into a talk about the war and what happened during and after Eero's stay in Sweden. The mother grudgingly agrees, and in flashbacks, Eero's story unfolds.

After his father (Kari-Pekka Toivonen) was killed during the war, young Eero (Topi Majaniemi) is sent by his mother (Marjaana Maijala) to Sweden. The boy protests, but is transported along with hundreds of other children, ending up at a farm belonging to married couple Signe (Maria Lundqvist) and Hjalmar (Michael Nyqvist). The rest of the story is about how Eero copes with the effects of separation from his biological mother as well as his confused feelings towards his temporary surrogate mother.

Entry is free for members of the Hyderabad Film Club. Please contact 2373-0841 for further details.
