A very Finnish story of crime, romance and life
14 May 2002 | by (Tampere, Finland) – See all my reviews



"Shall we go?" "Where to?" "Where ever." "What ever."

That's the best translation I can make for the Finnish dialog of the one of the great moments of the film. The whole movie is full of pastishes from young and enthusiastic Finnish film-makers (Aki & Mika Kaurismaki) for the likes of Alphaville etc...and the characters are also lovable...all in all, a film full of lovable characters and unforgettable dialogue...
