The truth about häjyt
8 August 2006 | by MadFishSee all my reviews

There are some movies in the history of cinema that instead of becoming old start to glow as years go by. "Härmälästä poikia kymmenen" is definitely one of those rare occasions.

The movie is an early version about a group of crooks called "häjyt" who fallow nothing but their own law. As they won't accept to be pushed around there still is a blink of human moral in their behavior. It's interesting how the two identical ways of thinking make a conflict as they are planted in totally different characters - the law-abiding officer and wild Antti.

Tauno Palo is remembered forever for his role as the bad guy but also Ilmari Unho must get a big credit for his calm directing. The subject could easily be shown in the light of admiring the poor criminals as the victims of their time and place like Aleksi Mäkelä does in "Häjyt" (1999) and "Pahat Pojat" (2003). Instead Unho points how small is the difference between the good and the bad and there are no reasons to defend the ones choosing wrong.
