A tale about ordinary things for the folk
20 April 2006 | by MadFishSee all my reviews

It took a while until Erkki Karu found out what was the real interest of the public movie-goers. After 1929 when he wrote "Meidän Poikamme" it was clear what would be the future of all Finnish film among the golden years of 30's and 40's.

"Meidän Poikamme" is a simple story of men going to army. The fascination lies in its simpleness; nothing really happens but it appeals to men and women of its time by touching the ordinary issues of their lives.

The film is very naive but the main character Axel Slangus is way too cold for the part to hold up the huge length of the movie. It would have fitted much better to have it played with more humor and happy attitude.
