adrift in Finland
31 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The best way to approach this disarming Finnish import is to imagine a mock existential road movie, set in and around Helsinki, where a burned-out Sicilian gunman is given orders to redeem himself by killing a woman who was once his lover. Of course nothing proceeds as expected, for either the reluctant assassin or for unsuspecting viewers. Against his better judgment, the hapless killer joins forces with his intended target's irrepressible brother, and despite the language barrier between them begins an aimless quest the length and breadth of Scandinavia, at first for the elusive, beautiful Marja, but finally for any way out of his spiritual crisis. In the end he finds neither, and as a result the film is little more than a low-key (if often engaging) shaggy dog story, drawing from both European and American role models, but shaded with a lackadaisical midnight sun mentality.
