Storyline

Tarmo, the young nephew of Uncle-Scrooge-like Consul Ö is after his uncle's fortunes. After investing in Tarmo's unfinished studies, the uncle is furious and threatens to leave Tarmo penniless unless he is able to raise one million marks in one month. If not, he'll donate everything to an antiquarian society. Helped by some magic pills given by his friend, Tarmo spends the month in and out of various money schemes. Among other things he tries making avant-garde films to please the awards jury, and spends holidays in Spain on behalf of his clients who are too busy to take time off themselves. A band of crooks in pinstripe suits watch Tarmo's every move, trying to eliminate him after hearing about his uncle's fortune. Written by Markku Kuoppamäki

How to make a million?

Hannes Häyrinen plays a filthy rich Uncle Scrooge-like Consul Ö.Spede Pasanen is his nephew Tarmo who's awfully attracted to his money.His character is pretty close to Donald Duck.Uncle gets upset with Tarmo and threatens to leave him penniless unless he can't make one million marks in one month.Now Tarmo tries different ways to get that money, he's a door-to-door salesman and a movie maker.Nothing seems to help.And there's a team of crooks after him in hope to get to his uncle's fortune.Simo Salminen plays Tarmo's best friend Hannu who gives Tarmo some pills that give him some energy.The romantic plot comes along with the beautiful Malla Pesonius, who plays Vieno Vienonen.Ere Kokkonen and Spede directed and wrote Millipilleri (1966).They both are also in the movie, Spede in the lead and Ere as one of the crooks named Iso.Pasanen and Salminen made a great comedic duo.They guarantee many laughs for the audiences at home.There's Jukka Virtanen as the simple crook they call Tappaja.His son Ville Virtanen makes his debut in this movie as Child in Kindergarten.The daughter Riikka plays an other child.Aarre Elo plays Aivo in the team of villains.Heikki Kuvaja is Tuhatkasvo.Marita Nordberg visits as Beautiful Lady.Juhani Kumpulainen is Psykiatri von Hermander.The young Risto Salmi is seen as Member of film award committee.The beautiful Teija Sopanen is Cleaning woman at Yleisradio.Jaakko Jahnukainen plays Tuhatkasvon valehahmo.Kirsti Rautiainen of Tupla tai kuitti is Head Waiter.Also Pirjo Pasanen (Spede's ex) is seen in this movie.The whole cast does brilliant job.This is comedian Spede's second movie and it's in some parts awfully funny.It's hilarious to watch those short movies Spede and Simo have made.It's also hilarious when Spede makes everybody think he's at the level of a two year old.I watched this movie with my family yesterday, on Finland's Independence day and we all found it funny.Spede was the master of Finnish comedy.He had the skill to make people laugh.Millipilleri is a good example of that.
