Uuno at his best
15 January 2006 | by MadFishSee all my reviews

Uuno Turhapuro -movies were the most successful films in history of Finnish movie. As they moved the crowd they still weren't that high rated due to the wholeness consisting of just separate lines of Pertti "Spede" Pasanen's jokes.

"Rautakauppias Uuno Turhapuro, presidentin vävy" can be counted as a positive exception in the line of dozens of Uunos. The writing is good and this is where Vesa-Matti Loiri keeps his insolent attitude towards the authorities till the very end. The remake of Spede's early "iron salesman" -scene must be the funniest part in history of Finnish comedy.
