- The story of a rock band "Kalle Päätalo" in the 1980s.
Original title Pitkä kuuma kesä.
The story centers around Unto Helo, a young boy who has left the Finnish capital Helsinki for Joensuu, a place in the province close to the Russian border. He meets Lajunen the lead singer of a rock'n'roll band. The time is the early 1980's. Unto claims that he has the best contacts in Helsinki and that he could help the band make their way to a gig at Tavastia, Finland's most famous legendary rock club. Unto fells in love with Noora and after a lot of adventures they all really end up at Tavastia. Young director Perttu Leppä has created a movie with a lot of atmosphere, he takes his characters serious, the cast is completely well picked together. "The long hot summer" is a movie about growing up in the Finnish province and it is so well done that the famous brothers Aki and Mika Kaurismäki are no longer alone in putting Finland on the map of European and World cinema.
Excellent music movie from the director of Pearls And Pigs. Finnish spoken language, optional subtitles in English. Region 2 Pal dvd. Cover art in Finnish.
