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

The most anti-climax boxing film there is. About love and swimming in lakes. Enjoying life (if possible) and trying not to fail. A nostalgic film about Finland, really. But no hollywood-hero-storytelling, no testosterone, and a charismatic Oona Airola. The film is good in its small side scenes (wedding, cycling in the forest etc). The boxing is accessory. Kuosmanen´s grammar is limited though.
