Finnish Classic
30 April 2013 | by KaurilainenSee all my reviews

This is one of the best finnish movies. It depicts the finnish small town life very well. Starts as a light comedy and takes a turn to darker side till the end. Hard to say if it is realistic but have to say that it looks "genuine" or "plausible" to my finnish eyes. I have two finnish movies in my shelf of hundreds of movies and this is the other one and better one. If I should choose finnish movie for anyone I would choose this one.

Casting includes pretty much the best actors of finnish movie scene. The way they build the story is good and the soundscape is remarkably good. Directing is slightly erratic but I couldn't think other way to direct it myself. Including camera work and editing.

One of the most underrated finnish movie.
