Storyline

Psychiatric patient Elmeri knows about the existence of a gold treasure in Finnish Lapland, hidden there by his late father who somehow managed to capture it from withdrawing German troops on the last days of WW2. His openly gay nurse helps him escape from the mental institution, and the two men slowly find their way up north to reach the gold. On their way, the odd couple meets a cavalcade of even odder characters. Written by Markku Kuoppamäki

The One
25 April 1999 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

It's a great comedy with really great jokes and actors. Every actor is perfect for their roles and making their best also. I think that only Finnish people can understand most of the jokes, but check it if you can. It's the One that begun the making of good Finnish films lately.

Legendary!
