User Reviews

Excellent acting!

Beware of spoiler herein!! It is very rare to have a play written and directed for TV only become such a big hit immediately on airing. That is what happened with "Kuolleista herännyt" (Woken from the dead), a semi-serious comedy (sounds crazy, but that's what it is) of a derelict man who think's he has won a million in a lottery, and subsequently receives hails and hoorays from his friends. As everyone wants a piece of the virtual "cake", the main character (Jonni Lumperi) stumbles from one disaster to another on a bumpy journey which, finally ends where he started; poverty and a bona fide member of skid-row aristocracy. Erkki Pajala, an excellent character actor, in the lead role as the sorry derelict makes the play, the rest of the cast follows and do their best as well. Truly enjoyable TV-theater!
