Two weeks of life in a modern suburbia shows people yearning for life and love. The lives of the people in the film are absurd, touching and warm-hearted, at times filled with humour, at times pitch-dark. Naked Harbour is a network of stories by the director Aku Louhimies, who is one of the most important directors of last decade in Finnish Cinema. Louhimies has been widely recognized in International Film Festival scene. His earlier works Restless (2000) and Frozen Land (2005) create an interesting background for Naked Harbour, both films are stories of an arctic soul. Naked Harbour is full of energy and emotions, it is very realistic and poetic as well as amusing and entertaining at the same time. The film was shot entirely with two cameras. The method is to cover all the acting and non-acting not normally to be seen. It is more John Cassavetes than Dogma.
