Storyline

In the punk rock era of the late 1970s three restless teenagers, two boys and a girl, spend their time in and out of a special class for problem kids. Jussi seldom sees his parents at home, so he is free to indulge in petty crimes, pranks, and getting drunk with his friend Pete. Jussi falls in love with equally rebellious classmate Lissu (Aki Kaurismäki's favourite actress Kati Outinen in her debut role), but the lovers' plan to run away together fails dramatically. Written by Markku Kuoppamäki

incredible...
11 January 2008 | by jhon6996See all my reviews

i was born in the 1980 and i saw this movie in 2007 and i hit me deep.all those suburbia scenery and and great music.This is one of the best finnish movies for me.

Tapio Suominen is a great director and seeing all that scenery and also good acting from the lead actors made me feel like i was a teenager in 1980 finland.

Especially the school scenery and general photography was well done. Jussi sleeping in the playground with the knife was very touching.

i recommend this movie for all finns who grew up in Helsinki in the past decades.
