Storyline

Based on Kari Hotakainen's 1997 novel, the film's main character is a not very successful writer, Hotakainen, who is ordered by his publisher to write a dramatic novel about his own secret life. In search for "manic" inspiration, he becomes entangled in the world of cars, particularly a certain yellow Toyota and a used Alfa Romeo. As Hotakainen breaks ties with his former life and reality, he finds himself in opposition with Pera, the young white trash owner of the Toyota. Written by Pauli Ojala

Finnish men indeed.
24 September 2002 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Director Väänänen has a heart.

When Finnish movie production has gone to 21st century. Väänänen takes a look back to the 80's.

This enjoyable movie includes three enjoyable male characters played buy excellent actors:

A writer, who is desperately trying to get his book published so that he could buy a car of HIS dreams.

A policeman, who adores (like he says) REAL drunk drivers.

A car salesman, who adores Arvi Lind (a well known news reporter in Finland).

This movie is not produced in Hollywood. It don't even try to pretend it.
