Trivia

The odd big-eyed figures seen in the background of some scenes at Robin Hood's camp are large versions of Fauni trolls, created by Helena Kuuskoski. These were popular at the time and even had their own theme park in a forest near Järvenpää, about 40km from Helsinki. Later Kuuskoski moved to America where she continued making troll figurines.

We Thank You Pasanen!
20 September 2005 | by Shaolin_ApuSee all my reviews

Everyone knows Robin Hood, but not many has parodied him so well as Pasanen has done. Finnish movie-wizard Pasanen created a medieval world into late 1960's Finland and made a movie that is really fun to watch, though not all jokes give you another laugh after viewing this item about twentieth time. Despite this there are still some really good ones, that make you laugh every time you watch the film. The preface in the film makes a parody of Finnish literature and history so well that you can't but admit Pasanen's genius!

Great is also the music. The 'almost' a title song is sang by Danny, who plays a minstrel in the movie. As this movie is a comedy, not everything need to be from medieval age. You may forgive Pasanen for dragging Leonardo da Vinci from the Renaissance to somewhat earlier time. Some of the jokes are a bit contemporary and are difficult to comprehend as they were meant to be, but who cares. With 'Noin 7 Veljestä' Spede created a movie that is a complete entertainment with all necessary item: drama, action, music, jokes, strange machines, hot women and funny faces.
