An interesting story about my former neighbours
2 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

I spent about 15 years of my childhood and teenage living in the municipality of Suomussalmi where this movie was filmed. I also know two of the three main characters of the story, one of them being my former friend. So what else could I do than praise this movie? I bet nothing.

Still I honestly can say that it's a great story about what can it be to live in a region with almost 30% unemployment rate and which can provide future for only a tiny part of the young people. People are aging and all the young adults are moving away after they've finished their high school. I bet this film offers a lot to especially young people everywhere.

Watch it, a rumour tells that it can be seen in Finnish tv soon. :)
