Best Finnish film of the decade
2 December 1998 | by (Helsinki, Finland) – See all my reviews

Story about bunch of loser criminals; Mike is released from jail and his friends decide to give him homecoming party. A Christmas party, to be exact, in the middle of the summer. But hey, things just ain't the same after you've been in prison for four years; Mike's girlfriend has married Mike's brother, and Mike's other robber buddies have drank all the profit they made off a bank job. And one of the guys has become a spreader of the great lord's Word... Lot of slapstick-comedy, irrational black humor and four ugly men in the sauna...
