In The Lumberjack’s Bride, a tragic lumberjack rafting accident and the drowning of a young man leads to a rift in a small Finnish village and up-heaves the marriage prospects of the young man’s sister, Hanna. A love triangle gets out of hand when murder is being considered, and what better way to make a murder look like an accident than by all indulging in some hearty river rafting. The impressive climax of the film was shot with six cameras and there was more than one dangerous incident during the production of the film.
