Psychiatric patient Elmeri knows about the existence of a gold treasure in Finnish Lapland, hidden there by his late father who somehow managed to capture it from withdrawing German troops on the last days of WW2. His openly gay nurse helps him escape from the mental institution, and the two men slowly find their way up north to reach the gold. On their way, the odd couple meets a cavalcade of even odder characters.Written by
Film tells about a man who's living in a mental hospital. One day He finds out that his relative, Kyrpa Jooseppi (trust me, you don't want to know what that means in english), who used to dig gold in Lapland back in 1940's. Back then there were Nazis in Finland who tried to blackmale gold from Jooseppi. Jooseppi and His Gold mining friends killed couple of Nazi's and buried them with a treasure. So it's all about man finding his Grandfathers gold treasure. The bad thing is, that there's still couple of old Nazies who are also after the treasure.
The film is very funny with lot's of good jokes, but it still lacks the humor that can be found in Kummeli Stories. You should see this film alltough it's not currently sold as DVD.
