Seumas F. Sargent,
This movie is, in my opinion, just a movie below the average with a quite standard teenage plot. I see that the movie can be rated very high in Finland. However, it is actually a standard Finnish crap with a bad cinematography and editing. Sorry to write it, I like Finland very much.
The only thing which should be mentioned in a positive way is interesting music.
In comparison with other relatively new Finnish movies, I would rated worse than Nousukausi. If somebody wants to see and interesting FInnish movie, he or she should buy a DVD with Levottomat which has much better story line than Tyttö sinä olet tähti.
