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

Truffaut would have been proud. At her best, Oona Airola channels a young Jeanne Moreau. The 16mm film really comes to life in a few memorable scenes, like the motorcycle ride near the beginning, and Olli's march to the ring before the fight. I love small gestured efforts like this.
