Menolippu Mombasaan
12 November 2005 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

The name of the movie, Menolippu Mombasaan (One-way ticket to Mombasa) is very interesting, I think. But the cover of the film isn't interesting anymore. The movie is a lovely surviving-story. Pete has a cancer and he won't survive. So he escapes from hospital. Pete wants to live his dream, he wants to go to Mombasa. And the film can actually begin. Pete, cancer-boy and his friend Jusa want to go to Mombasa. Pete's cancer is bad, and he won't survive. Boys start their trip to Mombasa, and they meet Kata. Pete and Kata are more than just friends, and Kata wants to come to Mombasa too. After this the movie is most boring ever. It was fun before Kata came, when boys were having fun. But when she comes, you can stop watching the movie. The story is OK and actors are fine, but I don't think it's very interesting. If you like Finland and our boring movies, this is for you. If you don't like, this isn't for you. But if I didn't like it, that doesn't mean that you should not watch it. So go ahead. Watch Menolippu Mombasaan!
