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!
