Nice and funny
6 April 2003 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I saw this film a couple of years ago, and recently found the title through IMDB. Just a nice Finnish movie in my opinion, and funny too. This film proves that not all the great Finnish movies are from the hand of the Kaurismäki brothers.
