Trivia

Anssi Niemi and Matti Pajulahti were given the opportunity to improvise a scene where their characters face each other in a hallway. Only modification to their version that was wanted, was them to do it slower. Apart from that, despite the several minute length takes and the large number of dialogue, the film doesn't contain improvisation. See more »
