Storyline

Farmer Ihalainen must go borrow matches from his neighbor. On the way he meets his friend Vatanen, who wants to marry the neighbor's daughter. Ihalainen promises to speak for him, and when the marriage is agreed, both men go to town to prepare the wedding. On the way they celebrate a bit, and arriving drunk at the town they end up in jail. Having broken havoc all around, they are released with the help of an old friend, widow Makkonen. To Vatanen, the widow now seems like a better option for marriage, and things get even more complicated when the villagers hear rumors of the men's death, and start reorganizing their lives. Ihalainen still has no matches... Written by B-rapunSaario

I've seen this movie at least 7 times still enjoying it. Especially Aku Korhonen as Antti Ihalainen is just adorable. This is also a popular drama held in Finnish summer theaters which usually take place outside located in beautiful or historical places all over the Finland.

Ester Toivonen (as Maija-Liisa Ihalainen) was known first as Miss Finland 1933 and Miss Europe 1934 elected in the UK. She acted in 14 movies between 1934-1943 and was even offered a contract in Hollywood but somehow she refused it. Ester Toivonen was the first Miss Finland who acted in a movie and many others have been followed her. Usually they acted only in one movie in a minor roles having perhaps few lines. Ester Toivonen was a real actress.
