Dada Kubin's rating of the film The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Mäki

A wonderful, small big film about love, ambition and boxing. The script is great: it gives the movie room to breath and builds up tension with simple issues (eg. will Olli be under 57 kg in due time). The dialogue works well, the characters feel very real, and the on top of it, the actors do a great work, especially of the two main characters, Olli and Raija.
