A classic story of a boy and girl in distress struggling
5 October 2002 | by (Esbo, Finland) – See all my reviews

Even though some aspects of this movie are somewhat exaggerated in the "bad" suburbs of Helsinki the story is nevertheless powerful, believable and the actors are convincing. The first part of the movie features the events shaping the players. The second part features the players trying to shape the events.
