A poor film which was made on the famous Finnish quartet
"Kipparikvartetti" (Virta, Käyhkö, Nuotio and Joutsela) was formed in 1950 and it was famous at the time. All of these four were professional singers (which necessarily doesn't mean they had the ability to act well). The movie trusts on their music and that's where things have gone wrong.
OK, the musical sequences are good (and it's good there is film material on these singers) but the material between the music seems to be more or less indifferent compared to the goodness of the singers. There is of course a romance which develops between Olavi Virta's and Liisa Tuomi's characters. The romance is quite loose from the intrigue, as well as the few gangsters who are after a rich lady's diamond.
Maybe it would have been a better idea to film the music parts only. But as I mentioned it's important we have at least this material on the quartet.
