Storyline

Half-senile Ossi and his wife travel to celebrate Ossi's 75th birthday at an old people's home where most of their friends are already staying. Just before the festivities Ossi suddenly disappears and goes on tour to 'make an inventory of his life'. He checks into a hotel, poses as a publishing director to lure an aspiring female novelist, next travels to bother his old mistress and her new husband with his surprise visit and obnoxious comments, then goes to see his son for the first time in 34 years just to receive an even colder treatment. Meanwhile, his equally demented wife goes looking for him with a local policeman. Written by Markku Kuoppamäki

Sad and rather tragic, but I like it.
4 March 2004 | by (Helsinki, Finland) – See all my reviews

Eeva-Kaarina Volanen and Lasse Pöysti put on master performances in this tragic TV-film about an old married couple.

Nelly (Volanen) and Ossi (Pöysti) are an elderly couple whose sense of reality has dimmed. Though it is not mentioned, it is likely that both suffer from Alzheimer's disease. Ossi decides to go on a travel to find his long-lost son and Nelly, wandering aimlessly, finds a good friend of the police. The film is tragi-comic and so the end cannot be a happy one, but so much happens on the way to the end that you just have to watch it until the very end- This film won the Prix D'Italia prize. It was also Eeva-Kaarina Volanen's last film.

Recommended.
