C (Lauri Nurkse) and Eetu (Tommi Mujunen) are the best friends. They work together as bike couriers in the center of Helsinki, and training tightly every night to reach success of bicycle racing. However, life will change once and for all when a charming and resolute student girl Oona (Elena Leeve) is coming to work in same courier company.Eetu falls in love to Oona. K is annoyed about this, because Oona interferes with their training.
I watched this because it was a cycling film but it was so much more than a simple sports film. On the surface it is about the rivalry between K and Eetu to be top dog on a local Finnish cycling team (and later a love rivalry for Oona), with the three main characters all working for the same bike messenger company.
Eetu is the number one cyclist in the cycling team but K beats him in a local race changing the status quo. As an aside, it is mainly a roadie bike film but there is some underground MTB training in a local mine.
But it is more than a cycling film - it is also a film about ambition, love, friendship and life. How many Finnish films have you watched- I can't think of any? This film works on all levels- it has a story, some action and the cinematography is also good. It may be a "small" film but it is worth 90 minutes of your time.
