The last coming of Uuno Turhapuro
5 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

The year 2004 brought us one more time this character we know as Uuno Turhapuro.Spede Pasanen created it in the early 70's and Vesa-Matti Loiri made it famous.There were nineteen Uuno movies in total, if we don't count the unofficial Uuno Turhapuron veli (1994) with Esko Salminen in the lead.Everybody thought the tale of Uuno was finished after Spede Pasanen passed away in 2001.But they decided to make one more to honor Spede's memory.This is what they came up with.Uuno Turhapuro-This Is My Life shows us a little aged Turhapuro.He even goes to old people's home, but only for the free food.His friend Sörsselsön (Simo Salminen) works as a janitor there and he assigns Uuno to a contest called This Is My Life hosted by Merja Larivaara.In that show you have to tell about your life, naturally.The viewers get to vote who can continue in the show.That program gives an excuse to show clips from old Turhapuro movies.Ere Kokkonen is the director of the final Turhapuro movie.Vesa-Matti Loiri is still great as the main character, after more than thirty years.He also does a couple of others his well known characters, Nasse-setä and Jean-Pierre Kusela.Marjatta Raita is known as the wife of Uuno, Elisabeth Turhapuro.She's still brilliant.The fantastic Tapio Hämäläinen is always fantastic as her father, his father-in law Vuoristoneuvos Tuura.Every time he opens his mouth something hilarious comes out.And the wonderful Marita Nordberg as his wife is just wonderful.Elli Castren is Unelma Säleikkö and she still has the magic touch for Uuno.Simo Salminen does the part of Insinööri Sörsselssön and he does it good.As he has always done.Hannele Lauri is good as Vanhainkodin johtajatar.There are some other legendary people as the residents of the old people's home.Helge Herala is there as Opettaja Happonen.It's always great to see him for he always does a good job.Pentti Siimes is awfully funny as the forgetful Eversti.Heikki Kinnunen as ex-pankkiiri, Kristiina Elstelä as Elviira are very good.Anja Pohjola is very nice as Anni.Jope Ruonansuu does the part of Imitaattori and it's always good to see his impersonations.Spede Pasanen as Härski Hartikainen is seen only in archive footages.And so are Olavi Ahonen, Juhani Kumpulainen, Yrjö Parjanne, Marja Korhonen and Jyrki Kovaleff.Titta Jokinen is seen in archive footage and playing a character in this movie.A couple of other fine actors have passed away after this movie.Ville-Veikko Salminen, who was seen in some of these movies plays the actor.And he sure was a fine actor.More recently we lost Tarja-Tuulikki Tarsala.She plays the part of Enni.We can see some great, some not so great visitors in this movie.Those politicians seen there are more or less pointless, but I can mention Danny, Aarre Elo, Arvi Lind, Eero Melasniemi, Arto Nyberg, Aira Samulin and Jukka Virtanen.Teija Sopanen returns once more to her old job as TV-kuuluttaja.I saw this movie chopped in five parts a few months ago.It gave me a few moments of laughter.Uuno Turhapuro is such a fantastic character with his untidy face and string vest.In this last movie comedy meets tragedy more than in the previous ones.The times have changed, people have died but Uuno still remains.Thank you for all these years, senor Turhapuro.All we have now are the reruns.
