Catastrophic nonsense
2 July 2017 | by paulijcalderonSee all my reviews

A movie about nonsense that's nothing but nonsense. I've seen some good Finnish comedies in the past and I saw this with some relatives from Finland. They were all amazed by how bad it was. I mean, they couldn't believe it. So, it was honestly funnier seeing their reactions than anything in the movie itself. The basic premise is that a mailman tells a story about two gangsters and a failing scriptwriter. It sounded hilarious at first, but the execution is so lazy that it becomes an embarrassing experience. The scenes drag and drag to the point of it being boring. It's so overacted that I can't even tell if the actors were acting poorly on purpose or not. I can only find minor amusing moments, but most of them were unintentional.

It's a total catastrophic mess with little going on. I don't even understand how this got made. At least it's a good example of how not to make a movie. Vesa Matti Loiri who portrays the main character is usually a great comedic talent. Watch any other of his films and stay far away from this one.
