Trivia

Before the film's premiere at Helsinki International Film Festival, there was a legal threat posed to the authors aiming to ban the film from public screenings. This caused quite a stir and was reported also in Finland's largest newspaper, Helsingin Sanomat. Also, security staff was hired to the Helsinki International Film Festival premiere in case of violent outbursts from people involved in the documentary. See more »

A good story, vividly told -
7 December 2004 | by (Helsinki, Finland) – See all my reviews

I suspect this film may not have done very well at the box office here in Finland, not least because it seems hardly to have been marketed. That's a pity, because it tells a good story of greed and folly in a very vivid way, and gives insights into the Finnish mindset which are usually open only to those fairly few foreigners who have a grasp of the language. (And in doing so, it overcomes some of the more tired clichés about the Finns, which I fear Kaurismaki's films sometimes exaggerate.) It looks good, there are some very funny moments, and the soundtrack - featuring some very tacky versions of well-known classics

  • complements the visual material very satisfactorily. It would be a


pity if it failed to reach a wider audience.
