This is hugely underrated movie. Although my memories come with golden edges, this one i saw all the way back when i was approximately ten years of age, and now about 16 years later, i saw it again. So this might not be the most objective review but anyway. This movie just brings forth so many memories and with that a lot of feelings. Cant find anything negative to say even tho i'am a sound designer and thus know something about making a movie. But Veturimiehet heiluttaa is almost flawless with all its minor flaws that create the unique feel and atmosphere to it. Its sad and a bit melancholic but yet gives hope and strength, makes you think about life. Plus i pretty much identify myself as Hapa. Thats something. Wish i could have those days back. I remember, it was a sunny day and my mom was preparing a dinner. Today just an hour ago while i was watching, just for brief moment, i could almost pick up the scent coming from the kitchen.
