Quite refreshing
17 March 1999 | by fredriknSee all my reviews

For having a reputation as a one movie country, I thought that this movie was really good. It captures the Finnish mood in a very good way.

There are a number of exciting roles in this movie and noone really turns in a bad performance. Even the Greek guy talking Finnish actually manages.

If you want a slightly, but not too different movie, see it.
