Teuvo Tulio – Intohimon vallassa AKA In the Grip of Passion (1947)


This is based on a short story by neo-romanticist writer Johannes Linnankoski, and is a remake of Tulio’s now-lost debut film Taistelu Heikkilä Talosta (Battle for the House of Heikkilä). I don’t know how faithful this is to the story, which involves an abusive, alcoholic master of a country house and his wife, who struggles for the upkeep of the property against his destructive tendencies. The movie started Tulio’s downfall, with contemporary critics consistently calling it half-baked, and accusing Tulio of repeating himself.


Subtitles:English, Finnish, Swedish (muxed)
