Trivia

Matti Pellonpää suffered from fear of heights and when filming a scene where he had to walk on a roof, there was also another disadvantage: in previous days' filming he had drunk some dirty water (against director's advice) and thus now had stomach ache. Despite all this, Pellonpää managed to provide a good performance. See more »
