The movie makes references to Nazarin (1959) with an upside-down poster of the film that can be seen on a wall, and also to Samuel Fuller - behind the village police commissioner that Juha goes to see, a sentence is written on the blackboard which says: "Arrest this man! - Sam Fuller". See more »
Juhais a black and white film with no sound, yet it is one of the best Finnish movies this year. Director Kaurismäki has drawn great performances out of the three leads, especially Outinen, who truly knows how to act "without words". The script is reasonably short and keeps the audience content through these silent 78 minutes. So, if you can overcome your prejudices against black and white silent movies, do see this one. "Juha" really delivers!
