Storyline

Valtteri and Sepe, two ordinary white-collar guys from southern Finland drive up north to implement a plan they've been hatching for months. Because they simply love the taste of lamb, baked "robber-style" in a hole dug under a campfire, they forge their car's number plates and other important documents just to be able to poach sheep grazing on the roadside without getting caught. Lots of man talk around the campfire, aided by lots of booze. The summer may be wet, but the vodka is definitely dry. Written by Markku Kuoppamäki

Men who eat sheep

Valtteri and Sepe are two city buddies who go into the woods to hunt and eat some sheep.Lampaansyöjät (1972) is directed by Seppo Huunonen.I read the 1970 novel by Veikko Huovinen a little before I saw this movie.Both are quite funny and a little tragicomic telling a tale of friendship between two Finns.Leo Lastumäki and Heikki Kinnunen as Valtteri and Sepe are excellent.Those two have paired many times, mostly doing TV comedy, and it's always a lot of fun to watch them together.Rose-Marie Precht plays Head Waitress.Jukka Sipilä is Farmer.Raili Veivo is Boarding House Hostess.The movie is quite hilarious from time to time.Like when those two are in a sinking boat.Or the German ladies who are offered some food called Rosvon paisti.It's quite grotesque and funny to watch when Sepe handles the dead sheep.This movie contains a lot of booze drinking, which is very Finnish.I don't drink myself, but it can be sometimes funny to watch that happening in a movie.I recommend both the book and the movie to be read and seen.
