Quotes

Martti: Did you know that a man is truly in love when he wants a baby? What a fool I was.
Jukka: I don't think it's silly at all.
Martti: It is! Love makes you do silly things, like running around at night smashing cameras. Did you even take any pictures?
Jukka: A little something.
Martti: A little something? I just don't tolerate with such modesty! You either shoot out of passion or you don't shoot at all! Photography is about seeing things others can't see.

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.
