The Swan and the Wanderer (Finnish: Kulkuri ja joutsen) is a Finnish film telling the story of two very popular Finnish singer/songwriters, Tapio Rautavaara (Tapio Liinoja) and Reino Helismaa (Martti Suosalo), who worked together until their relationship got frictious for a long time. The film covers the years from 1949 to 1965, the date of Helismaa's death.
Because the film is based on real-life people it also tells much about the change in Finland during those years, and of course much about Finnish popular music.
