An absolute must see, from 1993…
Damn, this is pretty harsh, “The Finnish tango is not to be confused with the glorying, grinding, passionate Latin American version. The Finns have managed to neutralize all that, it’s a sad shuffle in a minor key, with lyrics to reaffirm couples instinctive sense of hopelessness.”
Erf, well quite a bit of sensationalistic journalism there, I think that blonde hair Finnish guy was just “taking a piss” as the Brits would say, but they took him seriously. And as far as small talk with strangers go – whenever I’m on the bus or something I’m reading or listening to music or deep in thought, you’d be rudely interrupting me if you were to talk to me. I’m not depressed, I’m just preoccupied.
