¨Professor Palo goes to work- falls for Ansa
Professor Mathias Kaarivaara is not a big supporter of the dock workers' strike.Then he becomes a dock worker himself, and he gets a new name, Masa Vaara.His new job makes him change his views, and he makes some great speeches.A pretty journalist, Esteri Tervola, wants to write a story about him, and they both show interest in each other.Professori Masa (1950) is directed by the great Finnish director, Matti Kassila.Tauno Palo does terrific job in a double role.Ansa Ikonen is wonderful in the female lead.Leo Riuttu is superb as Väiski.Eija Inkeri is amazing as Masa's daughter Kyllikki.Lasse Pöysti is brilliant as Maisteri Pentti Simola.Siiri Angerkoski is great as always as Elisabeth the maid.Unto Salminen is very funny as the drunken former journalist Nordgren.Tarmo Manni is very good as Eemeli.Aarne Laine plays Alvar.Veikko Linna is Conservative.Leo Jokela is seen as University Student.This is a nice comedy from 60 years back that also draws a social message.It's quite amusing to watch Masa not wanting to wake up in the morning and then aching after the hard work during the night.And when Nordgren goes on and on of the topic Kaarivaara has given to him, showing his knowledge.And it's always great to see Tauno and Ansa together.
