So close to be a classic finnish movie!!
19 October 2002 | by (Tornio, Finland) – See all my reviews

Menolippu Mombasaan is good movie no doubt about it!But the sad thing is that it's only couple of steps from being truly mangnificent

The flaws

1.The script is too naive.But it's also funny and emotional! 2.The fact that the two main characters has a cancer is too much in the backround!!

But what is great

1.The cinematography!Especially in the end when three main characters are on the beach!That's great! 2.The fact that characters talks like REAL people would! 3.The humor is great!!

I recommend this movie!Don't underestimate Finnish cinema!It has became better and better so please support it!
