It is a strange combination for a film because the rhythm of scenes makes it feel like a Finnish film influenced by Kaurismaki or Jarmush, but the dialog is so opposite and strong like in a play with many hidden layers. I was thinking like Brothers McMullen maybe. My boyfriend and me were laughing at totally opposite things. The picture quality is not so good when I saw it on TV and the sounds were a bit weak. But the acting was very good except I wasn't sure if the lead actress was always convincing. The 2 men partners are hysterical. The talking between them is something I wish more Scandinavian films had. Or yes, some Danish ones really do but not so often or ever here in Finland. I saw this film by total accident - it was on a friend's cassette recorded from TV. I am not sure how many people even know this film. Hope more Finnish movies have this kind of writing, but it is true that lately 'some of them are getting much better.
