Poor script, overdone acting and uneven directing won't hold together for a moment in this aged comedy.
"Rikas tyttö" includes way too serious characters to be a warm comedy and is simply not strong enough to be seen as a decent satire about the class differences. The first part is very slow and stolid and the rest of the film seems to be shot with such a hurry and exaggerated cheeriness that the wholeness seems very underdone.
Still there is a reason to see this work; unfortunately an accident caused the promising 19-year-old lead actress Sirkka Sari's death and so "Rikas tyttö" will be remembered as her last appearance on screen after only three long movies.
