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>

Great
31 January 2002 | by (Tampere, Finland) – See all my reviews

This is a best Finnish movie what i have ever seen. I like Irwin's music and of course this movie. I think that Finnish people can get something more from this movie than e.g. US residents cos they don't know our culture that good than we know. And and I watched the film with english subtitles and there are few scenes where the subtitles don't say the things exatcly how they are, but otherwise subtitles are allright. I give this movie highscore points.
