Excellent comedy
9 March 2009 | by MikaelPalSee all my reviews

An excellent original comedy about racing and the people who love it. It won't win any awards, but still it was one of the best Finnish films I've seen the whole year.

Heikki Silvennoinen proves that he can be funny without his Kummeli-shtick. The script was molded from the classic feel good-mold, but it achieved what it tried to do. Some of the dialog felt a bit forced, but that didn't bother me much. The racing scenes were exciting and the cursing classic.

Bravo Mr. Pölönen, you have finally done something that can be only out shined by Kivenpyörittäjän Kylä.
