Lauri Nurkse surprised by delivering a fresh and modern feel-good movie with serious enough themes to make it feel untraditional in its genre. Katja Kallio's script and Saija Lentonen's disarmingly sweet presence carry this film through its rough spots. Kristiina Elstelä's character is difficult with hints to her dementia and mental health problems. Yet she delivers the best punchlines. Kari-Pekka Toivonen plays a total loser, success-story of a man who disappointingly fits the mold of insecure cheating man. Even though the movie's running time is almost two hours, it seriously feels as if it ends too fast. The ending is hard to swallow but it does not destroy the overall feeling of the film.
