Finnish comedy is always tragic hahaha
3 January 2002 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Ameriikan raitti is a funny and witty movie about 2 finnish small time crooks who take off and head to America for a better life. I've always liked movies that are filmed on location and i guess that is a plus in this one as well. Too bad the actors recruited from Florida are a bunch of amateurs. Anyway at points it's almost as fun to watch as 'Häjyt'.
