I won't spoil the films ending by telling you how things turn out - but I will highly recommend this movie!
In fact, Markku's world becomes much more interesting in time, as the man without a past overcomes all obstacles, a rebel against a drab European Socialist nightmare.
During this film there is a lack of any type of facial expressions or emotions of the characters, even when they are speaking to each other.
A witty and tender movie about the Helsinki poor. Christian charity, high character, droll humor. It's all there.Published 2 months ago by Leon

Top-notch story and acting. I discovered this after watching Le Havre by the same director, which I also recommend. It is well worth the trouble of having to read sub-titles.Published 10 months ago by Steve in Memphis

This is a very enjoyable, if not a bit eccentric, film. Having been to Finland and worked with several of them, I found the personalities in the movie easy to relate to. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Sedge
In Finnish, as I recall. Very interesting. Funny at times. Realisim counts for plenty with me. Nice to see losers find each other.Published 21 months ago by Maurice L. Wymore
Finnish movie. We analyzed it in my Scandinavian cinema class in college and that didn't even ruin it! Finns have a dry sense of humor compared to Americans. Read morePublished on January 16, 2013 by talya
