This movie should be awarded an Oscar!!
26 February 1999 | by HjalliSSee all my reviews

This is one of the most exciting thrillers I have ever seen!! Pekka Huotari really made his breaktrough in this film. I guess we will meet him several times the upcoming season. Rumours say that he rejected a very good offer from Steven Spielberg. He must be up to something really big, this fellow!!!

Anyway the movie rips you out of the chair as the visual, as well as the audio effects, puts you into another dimension.

Finnish movies are closing in on the so-called Hollywood movies!! WAY TO GO FINLAND!!
