Great Film about Doping
A PATRIOTIC MAN has an inspired concept: a man with a special blood type is used as a human doping device for the athletes on his national ski team. Director Arto Halonen has made the most of this darkly comic subject, and captures a surprisingly broad and powerful range of emotions, excitement and humor. In a sly parody of a Christ story, the main character gives his blood to bring false glory to the skiers and coaches who use him. The actor playing the lead role gives a wonderful, detailed performance, and the actress playing the woman skier who relies most deeply on his blood provides an equally memorable turn. Throughout the film, Halonen’s directorial method is clean and unblinking, with a distinctive style of clear-eyed black humor that manages to be both very funny and very emotional without ever turning saccharine. I know not everybody can see the skill and art that goes into a style like this, which never calls attention to itself, but Halonen’s steady, classical technique is relentless in exploring the characters and bringing out the flavor of the story. This kind of directing is, in many ways, much harder than flashier styles, and makes the film more complex and multi-sided than pushier approaches. The screenplay, by Halonen and Jouni Kemppainen, is a marvel. It gathers together a huge cast of characters in a complicated series of athletic and personal events, yet always maintains a straightforward drive and intelligence. The dialogue from start to finish is wonderful: smart, funny, incisive. Overall, the film is very different from anything else out there, and is definitely worth seeking out. Like any movie that has its own style and tone, it gets bigger in your mind when you get away from it and look back on it later. Here’s hoping that more of Halonen’s films get shown in America in the future, and that he writes more screenplays with Kemppainen.

a good film
Quite a good film. Nicely delves into themes of patriotism vs morality. Interesting settings and the art directing was great!

The scenes “from Canada” were quite were quite funny as I am from the ’88 Olympics host city. Although, interesting to the storyline, we do not have stripper places like that in canmore / banff and no cab driver would ever throw you out of the cab into the snow like that. We are Canadian! The driver would politely ask for the money and then ask your to pay the next day, or report it to the RCMP. The Cowboy hats were especially funny. They must have been bought in spain or online. nothing like a real cowboy hat (but what is a Canadian cowboy anyway besides a funny costume from the past??)

Overall quite a good film. I always like story-lines that are particular to a time and place and compartmentalized to intertwined lives. The Toivo was well developed, displaying characteristics of short-shortsightedness, hope, detachment from reality, and delusions of fantasy.

A funny, sweet and poignant film.
