Return of Erkki Hakala
11 March 2002 | by (Vantaa, Finland) – See all my reviews

Erkki Hakala is back where he belongs, but a fresh start is not as simple as he hoped. He has money and self-confidence, business is in his blood. Kaisu proves to be his real challenge.Is she happy to see him again? Does she even want to see him again? This film was entertaining but somehow failed to capture the audience like Pohjanmaa or Häjyt.
