This is a must for at least all finnish movie fans (with subtitles, why not for everybody). Rumble is by far the funniest finnish movie I've ever seen. About an hour long Rumble is categorized here as an adventure movie, and that may be, but it's also a road movie and a hilarious comedy. This film has been a huge success among my friends and the catchphrases have come to be very popular and ever so funny as we sometimes yell: "Dillinger! Where are you!?". Having said all these things I have to point out that even the actors give a memorable performance, which is, sad to say, somewhat rare in finnish cinema (at least for me, anyway). Vesa-Matti Loiri and Tommi Korpela among others deliver as greasy-haired (George Clooney in O Brother Where Art Thou, anyone?), cry-baby dress code characters in search for long lost Dillinger. To know who is this Dillinger, I suggest you try to find out yourselves. Summa summarum, watch this film (if you can get it anywhere) with a bunch of friends after couple of beers and you're guaranteed to laugh your nickers off!
