Foreign Film Friday - Dog Nail Clipper (2004)
Also known as Koirankynnen leikkaaja
Ever seen a motion picture starring a Finnish Spitz? Dog Nail Clipper is a Finnish movie from director Markku Pölönen, filmed in Joensuu, Finland, also a filming location for the classic WWI drama Doctor Zhivago (1965).
Dog Nail Clipper tells the story of a British soldier who suffers a brain injury in World War Two and finds himself in the Finnish countryside looking for work. A friend tells him of the trouble he’s having with his dog’s overlong dewclaws and soon worries of the dog fill his mind as much as the war.
The film is available in the U.S. and Canada with English subtitles on a PAL format DVD.
Produced by Fennada-Filmi
