Aalto is one of the most iconic names in Scandinavian architecture and design. The great thing about his architecture is that the spaces are built to be experienced. In Virpi Suutari’s visually appealing documentary, we follow the couple Aino and Alvar Aalto's successful careers. AALTO is not only a journey through time and space, shaped by rich and captivating archive material, but also an intimate and touching love story between charismatic personalities. The film also acknowledges the contribution of Aalto’s second wife Elissa, a formidable figure in her own right. (Gothenburg Film Festival)
