Storyline

This is a film about young people finding their way, falling in love and experiencing disappointment. It's Finland in the early 60s, leading a quiet, sheltered life. Martti dreams of being "Iskelmäprinssi" (The Prince Of The Hit Parade), and finally makes it in the world of music. Rami dreams of being a race car driver. Two maidens - Sini and Bambi - have dreams of their own, but would need to go to compromise, if they want to support the boys they have fallen in love with. The films sports a brilliant 1960s atmosphere, complete with many unforgettable musical performances from Paul Anka, Umberto Marcato and the rest of the cast. The plot itself is only skin deep, but it was the goal of the director/writer Juha Tapaninen to recreate a movie musical of a more naive, carefree era. In that, he has succeeded very well.
