Häjyt tells a story of two friends who have a hard time finding their place in the society. Antti and Jussi are released from jail. While they were doing time for bank robbery, the third man involved in the robbery, the one who was not convicted, has become a policeman. He tries to help his friends to settle into the small town in Pohjanmaa, but the boys start a black market liquor business instead. The road seems to lead back to the jail. Written by
Actors Samuli Edelman, Teemu Lehtilä, Juha Veijonen and the producer, Markus Selin, promised to stop smoking if the film was seen by 200,000 viewers in Finland. That number was reached on February 15th, 1999. See more »
The characters are so realistic, totally in the hands of their own acts. The story evolves, you think you know what's coming... and that is only partly the case. The playing is outstanding. The music is very good and fits perfectly to the movie.
It's a movie about three school friends, who start to do criminal things. They rob a bank, hide the lute and two of them go to jail. The third one, Heikki (Teemu Lehtilä), get's off and becomes a policeman. When the other two get out, they meet again after a short time. Friends again, but that also places Heikki in an impossible position, because especially Jussi (Samuli Edelmann) gets involved in violent acts all the time. Both Jussi and his mate Antti (Juha Veijonen) try to get a normal life, but both get in trouble all the time, by their own (mostly Jussi's acts).
As Antti's grandfather puts it: only do things, you can take responsibility for... and that fails all the time.
They start to sell illegal booze, and the results are devastating... I won't tell the story, because it is a movie you really should see for yourself.
This movie is quite violent (if you cannot stand that, don't watch), realistic, humorous and amazing. The main characters are villains, criminals, especially Jussi, who seems to have no conscience. The only thing he cares for are his friends and his freedom, and the rest of the humans could rot in hell, he doesn't feel any remorse about the terrible things he does, that are actually quite funny from time to time. The odd thing is that those bad gays are very sympathetic.
A realistic and amazing movie, totally not standard.
