The rise and fall of the greatest record company in Finland - ever.
The greatest record company in Finland, Love Records finally get their story told by moving pictures. The sounds we already knew.
Film follows three main characters Atte, Otto and Christian and their quite different lives through 60's and 70's in Finland. We are not sure which parts of the story are true and which are not, but like Love Records on their time years ago, so it goes with this movie. The feeling is much more important than numbers and facts.
Movie is fast and it surely ends too quickly and suddenly. Another 15 minutes could easily add more depth to the story. Main characters are brilliant and it's fun to see Finnish music legends on the screen played by actors. The soundtrack is also naturally brilliant, off course. There ain't too many music movies from Finland for sure. And this one is the fastest and funniest one.
It's all about the feeling.
