This is fantastic
4 December 2011 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

In Australia Finnish films are hard to come by, After watching this film I'm wondering why. I am somebody who has read the book by Matti Joensuu and I liked both.

The movie has extreme changes from the piece of literature, maybe that I watched the movie first I feel as if I am okay with the changes they made, I feel the changes were for the better to add more depth to the characters.

Peter Franzén is perfectly casted as the lead character but he is not the highlight performance. In my opinion Sampo Sarkola is a great antagonist 100% believable. If I said all the actors that were believable I would list the entire cast but the performances that I liked the most (that I didn't mention) were Jenni Banerjee, Irina Björklund and Rosa Salomaa. The list goes on.

I can't recommend this Crime film more, out of the Finnish films that I have seen my personal favourite is Jade Warrior.

In Memory of Matti Joensuu, Author of the original book October 31, 1948 - December 4, 2011.
