Better than Pierrot le fou
19 March 2006 | by henriwrSee all my reviews

It was a few years ago, when I saw this film, but I remember that I liked it very much. It was a very good agent parody full of strange characters. I think that this film is almost as good as Seppo Huunonens most popular film Lampaansyöjät. Karvat is based on the same Lionel White's novel as Jean-Luc Godard's Pierrot le fou, but still I think that the Finnish adaptation is the best--maybe that's because I've always disliked Godard's artificial style to make film.

I would like to recommend this film to everyone, but Karvat is very hard to find, even in Finland...But if you have enough luck to find it, so watch it!!!
