Storyline

Martti Suosalo transforms himself into Irwin Goodman, and takes us through the singer's life. Written by his longtime friend and manager Vexi Salmi, the movie is apparently as close to the real life of Irwin as we can get. In addition to being the story of Irwin, the movie also looks at the transformation of Finnish society from the post-war years to the 70s and 80s. Written by Mikael Halila <mikael.halila@pp.inet.fi>

A singer´s Will

The story of Antti Hammarberg and how he was changed into Irwin Goodman. His friend Vexi Salmi created Irwin and made lyrics to his songs. Irwin sang about booze, love, just everything except The God and Kekkonen, former President of Finland.
