Magnifica: Passive Intruder

Magnifica: Kutsumaton vieras


Magnifica: Passive Intruder is a film about the coexistence of Finnish people in their summer houses and an uninvited visitor called Pectinatella Magnifica. The arrival of the green and slimy blobs among the safe and familiar environment brings uncomfortable feelings in the self-indulgent middle-class. Some react in astonishment and attempt to annihilate the strange creature, but others have a less prejudiced approach.
