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

Finnish Comedy Gold
2 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

Okay, while not the shiniest film ever made "Kummeli: Kultakuume" is one of the best and most memorable comedies I've ever seen. Unlike the other film "Stories" which was compiled out of extremely long sketches this movie actually has a very well thought-out plot.

The characters also have enough variety that the film doesn't get repetitive even in its feature length.

The presence of some very talented actors (aside the Kummeli-group of course) adds a whole new dimension of theatrics not regularly seen in Kummeli films. Also, who would have thought that a period film set in 1984 could be this amusing (then again, it worked for GTA).

I dare to say that this movie easily beats Spede Pasanen's films any day of the week, though the type of comedy is naturally a bit different.

One of the best Finnish comedies ever.
