Great silent comedy
29 June 2002 | by (Helsinki, Finland) – See all my reviews

This great comedy resembles some Laurel & Hardy films but adds some surrealism as well. Actors are nice. One reason I like this film is the fact that I was filmed in my former home town (Nokia, Finland), but it is also great and funny movie even if you don't know the places. :)
