Martti: Who took my pencil? Antti, you know in China a fruit monger can leave his cart in the middle of a square overnight and when he comes back in the morning, not a single fruit will be missing. If one of you should ever finish school, I hope the one grasps the nobility of art.

shallowness shines through
15 August 2002 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

first off, the acting is really horrible. the only decent performance is the main couple, but sjeez, where did they pick up the actors?

also at times the movie seems like an excuse for a selling soundtrack, which i believe it partly is, too, and that is just unacceptable.

on top it might seem like a movie that means well with the kid experiencing his first love and being deeper than everyone else, but the money that's in the producers eye just klings away in the background.
