“Steam of Life” – Cicero Lounge Film Review

A film about a group of naked men in sauna’s across finland might seem an unlikely film to watch, perhaps not one which captures the idea of a real tear jerker; but Joonas Berghall and Mika Hotakainen’s "Steam of Life" is different it’s touching audiences because it’s about REAL men, with REAL stories, and REAL emotion.


Variety had the following to say about the film : "Whoever says "boys don’t cry" should watch "Steam of Life,"  http://www.variety.com/review/VE1117942722.html?categoryid=31&cs=1#ixzz0vPr1tyME

Another Critic wites:
"Mika Hotakainen interviewed a dozen
Finnish men as they sat in saunas and steam rooms, opening up to each
other and the filmmaker team about hardships they’ve faced in life….
What is revealed in Steam is that in moments of
emotional turmoil and crisis, people benefit the most merely by being
heard."
