HORNANKOSKI (the Rapids of Hell) (1949) * with switchable English and Swedish subtitles *

Teuvo Tulio, Roland af Hällström Writer: Jussi Talvi Stars: Regina Linnanheimo, William Markus, Åke Lindman

There are two boys in the house of Yli-Koskela: Artturi manages rooms and Aarne spends his life aimlessly. When Aarne returns home, he punches a neighbor in the eye to please Lea, whom Arrturi wants for his wife. Tension between the two brothers increases and suspicious Arrturi doesn't trust Aarne's affections for Lea. Arrturi starts drinking, but Aarne has the lion's share of problems when he gets into a fight at a card game and the object of his anger ends up falling into raging rapids. Aarne thinks he's killed the guy, but Arrturi was watching the whole thing and saved the man from drowning. And, as you expected, he ends up telling Lea that her boy toy is a murderer.
