This is it: The final adventure of Uuno Turhapuro - the most successful Finnish movie character of all times. In the 80's Uuno Turhapuro break the Finnish box office records in the way no movie can ever gain more viewers. The director Ere Kokkonen has told that this is the last movie about Uuno Turhapuro and it was only made to the honor of late Spede Pasanen - who's creation Uuno originally is.
Vesa-Matti Loiri is multi-talented Finnish artist. He's an actor who can play almost anything - from serious drama to hilarious crazy comedy like Uuno Turhapuro movies. Now at age of 60 he portrayed old Uuno remembering the life he has lived. He takes part in the reality-TV-show "This is my life" and tell his life story to all the TV-viewers. In between there has been cut many clips from past Uuno movies from over 30 years of time. Behind the comedy there's sadness, which makes this Uuno movie one of the best. The genuine touching moment is the part where Uuno is remembering his deceived friend Härski Hartikainen (Spede Pasanen) who died little earlier in real life too.
Normally Uuno Turhapuro movies are a collection of scenes from his unusual life, but this one works as a movie with a real plot also. In between the remembering scenes in the TV-studio Uuno tries to solute himself in the home of rich elderly people in hope of good food and beautiful, young nurses. It also nice to see this legendary group of actors once more in their most memorable roles. One era of Finnish movie business has ended with Uuno Turhapuro Saga - but it is not forgotten.
Because of the long history of Uuno Turhapuro: 8/10
