Mother in library: [with daughter by her side] Hi, do you have Justin Beiber?
[= 'Robyn', Finnish artist, in original Finnish]
Turo Moilanen: [voiceover again, whilst Pasi looks non-plussed] We have Scandinavia's largest metal collection in town.
Pasi: [Turns to get from directly behind him, to pass over a CD to the Mother] Excellent choice: we have Uruguayan grind core metal.

Hilarious Finnish Comedy
13 October 2018 | by tmartin-78721See all my reviews

A funny and extremely clever satire of the Finnish and Norwegian death metal scene. You of course don't have to know anything about metal to enjoy this little gem of a movie, but if you do it's icing on the cake. If your a fan of the show metalocalypse definitely check this out. Also check it out if you are just a fan on fun indie comedies and don't mind subtitles. I don't mind subtitles, but I do feel they can hurt comedies as so much of the genre relies on the success and wittiness of the dialogue. Translations don't always carry through, and unfortunately I do feel the translations hurt this film slightly for those of us that don't speak Finnish. But the acting, and rememberable situations do speak for themselves. 7.5/10 (which is a high score for me.)
