The Grump is a man from the past. A man who knows that everything used to be so much better in the old days. Pretty much everything that's been done after 1953 has always managed to ruin The Grump's day. Our story unfolds as The Grump takes a fall from his basement steps, hurting his ankle. He has to spend a weekend in Helsinki to attend physiotherapy. The Grump doesn't like this for four reasons: 1) He has to take a taxi. 2) He can't take daily care of his wife, an Alzheimer's patient. 3) He can't drive, which means he might have to sit in a car with a female driver. 4) He has to spend time with his family.

We went to see this in the GFT and we are are British Finnish couple. As a Brit I've been made to suffer many Finnish films and this was by far the best :). I really enjoyed it.
It was very funny and really made you think about the difference between generations, gender and culture- in fact I'm still thinking about the things in it that made me laugh and whether they were because my partner is Finnish, a man or suck in the past!
I thought the end the film was quite beautiful and showed an example of how even with age, experience and stubbornness we can still be wrong but realise the beauty in the people around us is a thing to treasure and love.
