This film is so CUTE! During the wars Finns made many movies with low budgets to give people something else to think about. This movie is based on a novel by Simo Penttilä and tells about adventures of Finn-born General T.J.A. Heikkilä and his loyal companions in Middle and South America, imaginative country of Sierranueva. A bit of shooting, some beautiful women, 'exotic' sceneries (created by "Roy", who was awarded with Jussi-statue, Finnish Oscar), revolutions and lots of jokes one really can't translate into English - shame, as Simo Penttilä was able to use our language in such innovative and hilarious way no-one this far has been able to imitate.

You can find all possible stereotypes: latino-lovers and latino-crooks, hot-blooded latino women, blood-thirsty Indians and such, and of course these witty and trustworthy Finns to clear things out, but do not get angry with us, please... This movie may not be very good as such, but it sure made me smile so so many times! Wonderful piece of nostalgia, and of course Tauno Palo, heart-throb for several generations of Finnish women...
