This film deals with many problems that teenagers go through growing up. These are dealt with in a realistic way, unlike Hollywood films where everybody rides around in BMW's and dresses in designer clothes. The actress that plays the lead in the film gives a stunning performance. The film does contain a few clichés, but if it was not for these I do not think it would of become so popular and probably never released outside of Finland. The music really sets the tone for the piece and captures the zeitgeist. I think both the director and some of the actors have bright futures ahead of them. Go and see this film and decide what you think.
