What a farce!
30 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

It's shopkeeper/fire chief Kalervo Verto's wife's, Hilma's Name Day, and Heikki, young judge has got invited.He leaves the party with the dispenser and the girl from post office.The girl from post office ends up in the house of the old judge, and stays there while Heikki is invited to see the fire with Kalervo.They and their driver Alpertti drive down to Vekkula only to find out later the fire is in Heikkilä.That and many more mishaps happen on the way.Matti Kassila's Hilman Päivät (1954) is based on Agapetus' novel.He won a Jussi for Best Direction and Aarre Koivisto got one for Best Set Design.Matti Ranin does a real nice job as Heikki.The girls, Aino Mantsas and Vieno Kekkonen are both wonderful.Tauno Palo is fantastic as Yrjö.Edvin Laine is in the part of his lifetime as Kalervo.His character is very tragicomic and it all comes out the best in the scene where he gets lost in the woods and he doesn't find his way back to the fireplace.And he gets all depressed wanting to leave the squad but gets all excited again when he hears about the new equipment the department has purchased.Kaija Paasi is terrific as his wife Hilma.Salli Karuna does a great job as Eeva.Oke Tuuri is very good as Alpertti.Tarmo Manni is great as Seppä Kipala.Pentti Irjala is hilarious as Paapa.Arvo Lehesmaa portrays Pharmacist.Leo Jokela is in a small part as Aske, man at the fire.This is most hilarious farce I have seen in a while.The scene where they get, by accident, to a place called Vekkula and there is the old man who can't hear well, not well at all.They scream their lungs out trying to find out where the fire is.And the post office girl is hiding in the judge's house and the dog, Rippe takes her shoe.Also romance can be found in the picture.The scene where Dispenser talks about her life to Heikki is most romantic scene.It's nice how Kassila has used the still frame, like he used in his latter films.This is a farce you will never forget!
