Storyline

HOLIDAY FROM HELL. A young couple in the IT business, with no kids and a fancy house in a good neighbourhood, finally have a few weeks off before new career challenges. Envious about their friends' exotic holiday destinations, they meet a travel agent offering them the ultimate experience: four weeks in one of the shadiest suburbs of the city. Part of the deal is that their credit cards, passports and keys are all sealed in an envelope. Acting as an unemployed couple, their street credibility is often questioned by their new neighbours who are more at home with the ways of the concrete jungle. And this is just the beginning...

Great trip to Jakomäki losing everything u got
27 February 2011 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Tiina Lymi and Petteri Summanen does great acting here, if you like humor this is some of the best from Finland. Underestimated comedy that has also lots of real things about society in Europe, how can things go wrong even if it should be easy to get up from grave.

Actually you need to have some sort of brains to understand the humor of the movie, its not just some simple crappy story with good laughs, its deep and funny, very enjoyable.

DVD also have good music video from the band Egotrippi. Nice lyrics and though.

I truly love this kinda films, I'm on information technology business and so on, I get the jokes and everything about the film.

Great acting, directing, the script all together all magnificent, this is truly an original movie, no other like this. Also soundtrack is brilliantly put together for the movie.

Thats only my opinion and hopefully you'll enjoy the film :) I don't really can get lot's of minuses, maybe not so international movie but still great. If you are Finnish and like humor you've gotta see this one.

9/10
