Absolutely great movie
28 April 2009 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Two commentators of this movie must be some upper class gentlemen. If you have experienced the middle/lower class living and you recognize a great movie, you will enjoy this movie very much. The cast is filled with the best movie actors of the present time which isn't anything special in Finland.

It just amazes me how funny Hietalahti can be on the film screen. Just like in the Vares movies. The same fun continues on Rööperi. I can't figure any bad performance from any actors in this movie. Just brilliant acting overall.

The Criticism for performance of Jasper Pääkkönen as the "Gangster boss" is pretty harsh. I think he did his job fairly well nothing too special but at least not bad. And he was meant to look young and not so tuff that was the whole idea.

I've watched many good Finnish films but nothing quite like this. I don't care what the critics say, but for me this was the greatest Finnish movie of all-time.
