saw this at the Zlín film festival, Czech Republic, and out of the six films I managed to see in two days, this was the strongest one. A prince/Cinderella story set in Finland's small town, the director managed to give the audience a picture of how people perceive the Helsinki "upper class". With humour and story-telling so familiar from the Kaurismaki movies, the film begins with little expectations but surprises at the end when everything wraps up just the perfect way. Emotions are also "second-hand", given to you only after you get to know the characters. Everything wraps up perfectly - Kaurismaki-style. A great film for the young audience.
