They we're THE TOUGH ONES
21 July 2003 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Well The Though ones or Häjyt as we call it in Finland,is the probably the best Finnish movie that I've seen(maybe because I live in the same town where the movie was shot so there is lot of familiar places,my old school for example!)Well actually there is nothing but drinking booze and fighting in the movie,but that is what Häjyt is all about!!!
