A comedy about Janne, a man from Lapland in Northern Finland, a man who has made a career out of living on welfare. Inari, his girlfriend, is tired of Janne's incapability of getting a grip on life. Janne wasn't even able to buy a digital TV box that Inari had given money for. Inari gives an ultimatum: a digital box needs to arrive by dawn or she leaves. Janne sets out into the night with his two friends to find a box. On their way to the city of Rovaniemi, Janne and his friends face many challenges, obstacles and temptations. They learn that they need to be daring. There's no room to give into bitterness. The most important thing isn't success, but rather the journey in itself.Written by
This is one of those films that provide enough set pieces to pay off the simplistic plot. The film grows more outlandish by the minute and even when you think it is about to go on the straight and narrow, it takes another bizarre turn. Is it a genre defining movie? No. It is a movie that ticks the boxes and is fun in the process. Likable characters and a crazy plot allow for a film that is going to divide the audience. I enjoyed it.
