Those crazy Finns....

Finland is weird. Some time ago I told of Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning. An epic scifi-movie made by amateurs. The project took about 7 years to finish. Next, we had Lordi: A glam-rock band that went and won the Eurovision Song Contest by a wide margin. Could this get any weirder?

Why, yes it can! There's a bunch of Finns who are making a hi-caliber movie! I mean the kind of movie that could be watched in the big screen all over the world. That's basically unheard of in on itself! And its not just any kind of movie. It's an.... uh... epical kung fu movie. Yes, you read that right. The story apparently ties Finnish Mythology (The Kalevala) to Chinese Mythology, and delivers the combination with fistfull of kung fu. Come again?

I mean, think about it: Kalevala is not know for kung fu. Finns are not known for kung fu. Chinese ARE known for kung fu, but they don't have much to do with Finland or Kalevala. And yet, we have bunch of Finns shooting a kung gu movie in China, with Chinese and Finnish actors.

I'm serious, you can't make this stuff up!
