I was thinking of watching this much talked about documentary today. It basically tells the story of a bunch of junkies/petty criminals living in Rovaniemi, Finnish Lapland. Its filmed by one of the junkies himself, who decided that he wanted to document the life they were living. I've heard that its captivating. The guy in the centre of documentary, Jani, was found hanged in Cambodia some time ago, although Finnish papers still have not disclosed the cause of death.
