| Nostalgy
Director Markku Polonen's nostalgic take on Finnish singer Rauli "Badding" Somerjoki. As a Finn I can fully relate to the music, which I love, and the times when this story of a comeback concert is set. I was a teenager those days.

Acting by Janne Reinikainen is simply magical and he is a true look alike. I'm eager to show this movie to my oreign friends and see what they think. DVD also includes another movie by Markku Polonen about another "uniquely Finnish phenomen" TANGO! It's called "The Land of Happiness"

Finns will enjoy nostalgy, others maybe find this exotic.
