I saw this movie accidentally on TV yesterday and I found it really good. Comparison to nowadays movies is unavoidable and Im surprised to find myself admitting that drama was better 20 years ago than what it is now. I like the whole script even as it quite predictable. Some scenes have quite a shock value which I still found pretty realistic (in overall this movie is very realistic, which makes it so interesting). Dialog is solid interesting from the beginning till the end. Directing and camera work is pretty basic good drama, nothing tricky - but in this case this is a good thing.
What makes this movie so great are the three lead female actors. I really think they had an excellent chemistry and their performances in this movie are absolutely undervalued.
I hope Porttikielto taivaaseen will keep getting the views it deserves, because seriously - this is a quality movie.
