Une jeune ouvrière dans le textile au caractère bien trempé part assurer un job d'été dans une communauté rurale portée sur le retour à la Nature. Elle est loin de se douter qu'il s'agit d'une secte dont les intentions n'ont rien de bienveillantes.
If you thought hillbillies were a fully American problem, well, you are apparently wrong: in Tuftland, we meet Finland’s answer to backwoods troubles. Part inbred family and part cult, the villagers of Kyrsyä are the perfect portrayal of the simple life: a traditional, self-sufficient farming community who shun “the big road” and modern society and coexist happily with nature. This way of life has its pros and cons, just as life in the big city does, and that is the heart of Tuftland: a glance at the dangers of trading one extreme for the other.
Writer/director Roope Olenius delivers something that is quintessentially Scandinavian. That is NOT a bad thing, really. The austere demeanor, the highest measured pace, the prominence of internal conflict, it’s all here. The experience isn’t so much thrilling as it is interesting, not so much horror as it is disturbing and not so much mysterious as it is inevitable. This is not a horror film that attempts to surprise you. This is about the drowsy desire to give in to the familiar instead of stepping out into the unknown.
