A great comedy of optimism and self-confidence.
6 May 1999 | by erkkaSee all my reviews

Two born losers start a cleaning business. First, they have to travel all the way to Stockholm to buy one of a kind superhyper cleaning machine ('Tällaista ei ole muilla'). They are so convinced of their succes that even the fact that they live in Kokki's van, doesn't bring them down.

On their way to success there are many (funny) struggles and some killer slogans.
