It took a dozen years, but in 1952 the greatest dream of sports-crazy Finland finally came true: the Helsinki Olympics took place. The nation had recovered, risen from the ashes of two wars and regained an economic footing. For the first in a long time, the future looked like a lazy stroll down easy street. The Year 1952 is certainly the lightest work in Von Bagh’s cycle on decisive moments in Finnish history; a masterpiece of cinematic collage, with a surprising flow and cheerfulness.
