I had an opportunity to watch Vieraalla Maalla in a preview and I knew nothing in advance. I'm not too keen about finnish movies generally, but this one surprised me. The film was "good" from beginning to very end without any down-swings. There were few jokes based on finnish language and knowing some places, so it might not open completely to those not so familiarized with finnish/Finland. Anyway, if it ever makes to abroad video renting, I suppose it's a movies that nobody knows but surprises positively everyone who dares to take it.
