Nice idea, weird realization
1 May 2007 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Simply put, this is a movie about the identity crisis of a modern man. The concept, setup and quite a few details are interesting, but as a movie I don't think it quite delivers. Like some other Hotakainen's work, this can't easily be put in single genre and I think that's the biggest problem of this movie. Even at the end, you're not sure whether you were watching a comedy, thriller or a straightforward drama. The movie is directed with a nice flow, but the direction is very neutral, leaving you quite uneasy not knowing which turn the movie is going to take. I haven't read this specific book, but having read his other works I think Hotakainen's forte - warm satiric comedy - is not very well used here which makes this movie unnecessarily grim and drama-like.
