Travelling to Kuopio
17 August 2007 | by Petey-10See all my reviews

A train is travelling from Helsinki to Kuopio.In that train there are some escaping robbers.Esa Pakarinen plays The Conductor/Train detective Samuli Saastamoinen.The atmosphere is very jovial as the song says in Finnish.There's lots of singing and everything is good.Ville Salminen as the director and Reino Helismaa as the writer Lentävä kalakukko (1953) is a joyful Finish movie.Esa Pakarinen is there to make sure everybody's having a good time.Also his comic partner Masa Niemi is there playing a crook they call Läski-Leevi who has a twitching eye.Siiri Angerkoski plays a gypsy called Jenni and Armas Jokio is her man Aleksi.There are also Maj-Brit Heljo (Kaunis-Molly) and Pentti Irjala (Lumberjack).This movie works because of the fine characters it has.Lentävä kalakukko is good as a song and as a movie.
