One of the most beloved Finnish characters
3 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

Uuno Turhapuro may even be the most beloved Finnish character in the field of comedy, at least the movies still hang in there among the top Finnish comedies ever seen. Well over a dozen films on one character sounds amazing, but somehow Uuno never lost the touch and people wanted to see him again and again. He was the basic bum, didn't work, loved his couch and fridge, and thought he was a real ladies' man--in his torn, dirty undershirt and with his messy hair and teeth badly in need of dental work. But he was sooo lovable, even with his somewhat disgusting looks he was funny as could be, and he could talk his way through anything. I have never seen a better composed comedy character on screen. These are the only movies I've gone to see and missed half the dialogue, because people were laughing so hard. I wish they were available abroad, the Finnish humor might translate well through this character.
