Based on a novel, written by Leena Lander, "The Home of Dark Butterflies" is a story about a young boy, Juhani, who gets sent to a fosterhome.
He is a troubled boy, who sees nightmares of his past, the time when he was taken away by the social workers. In the fosterhome he befriends with the other boys. With the help of the fosterhome's manager, he might have a brighter future ahead.
Dome Karukoski is one of the most talented young directors from Finland. His vision of the novel is somewhat "brighter" than the original. But eventhough the filmmakers have wanted to make this film a melodrama for the whole family, it still has alot of dark themes like abuse and murder.
The acting is very solid in the movie, especially the young kids manage to surprise me in a positive way.
Cinematography focuses alot on the element of water. In overall, the camerawork is on a high level.
Dome Karukoski's best effort thus far and one of the best Finnish films of 2008.
There are no approved quotes yet for this movie.
