Mikon äiti


Country boy Mikko Syvärivi lands a job as a floor manager at the TV studios in Helsinki. He finds no place to stay in the capital, so he works as night guard. Ambitious Mikko writes some material of his own, but becomes an instant TV success after failing comically in a small role, which leads to a series of TV shows based on slapstick door tricks. But when he decides to raise his act onto a new level - window tricks! - his ratings plummet and the show is put off the air. Love and money fly out the window too, but Mikko won't give up easily. Written by Markku Kuoppamäki

Very uneven but fascinating as a self-portrait

In 1969 the popular comedy genius Spede Pasanen made two of his most interesting films, "Pohjan tähteet" and "Näköradiomiehen ihmeelliset siekailut". The first was his most obvious self-parody as a film maker and producer and the latter set in the unstable world of television comedy was a kind of a self-portrait.

The story: Pasanen works as an assistant in television comedy called "Simo-Show" (in real life Pasanen made "Spede-Show") and dreams of his own career as a comedian. Then he gets a supporting role in one gag and accidentaly steals the whole show. Soon he gets his own television series where he does gags with doors. Success makes him too proud and he tries to move from door comedy to window comedy. Although the basic joke is the same with windows than it was with doors, the audience does not approve this at all and in one night Pasanen's fame collapses.

The disasterous window show is the emotional climax of the film, and the image of the sad comedian on the stage after audience has left is oddly melancholic for Pasanen. The film is uneven, but it has great moments. One of them has Pasanen trying to do some shopping, which is impossible because everybody starts laughing at him and at everything he says. A scene from his everyday life? In the funniest scene night-watchman (Veikko Sinisalo) starts rewriting Pasanen's script.
