On Sampo, one more

I forgot to mention the startling fact that Sampo is still the only feature film made in Finland that is based on Kalevala! I understood that a new film is on the works, but know nothing about it. There's of course The Iron Age, directed by Kalle Holmberg from a script by Paavo Haavikko, but it was a TV mini series.

How about animation? There is at least Nelimarkka/Seecks Sammon tarina from 1971... It's not a feature, though, only 30 minutes.

Yeah, it's not a feature film.
