Not bad, particularly for a Solar Films movie. Jasper Pääkkönen is pretty damn annoying here (too) and through the film I kept on hoping that his character would die in a disgustingly violent manner.

On the other hand, Petteri Summanen and Sulevi Peltola make decent performances here. Samuli Edelmann's shouting is (unintentionally) hilarious.

When a schoolteacher is sacked he projects his bad mood at his troubled teen son. He in turn buys a CD player from a pawnshop with counterfeit money. This causes a chain-reaction that wreaks havoc on many lives, as everyone transfers their problems to the next victim.

"22.3 PC rewatch - ei aiempaa pisteytystä. Kaikilla on vitun paha olo, koska suomi on tuhansien murheellisten laulujen maa. Mikko Kouki huutaa, on alasti ja kuolee väkivaltaisesti. Jasper Pääkkönen saa kyrpää perseeseen ja oppii elämästä. Aku Louhimies voisi työntää päänsä mikroaaltouuniin. "

"18/03/2013 Tätä nyt yleisesti kiitellään yhtenä merkittävimmistä suomalaisista 2000-luvun elokuvista ja kaikki nämä vuodet olen typeryyttäni tämän onnistunut välttämään. Aku Louhimiehen tuotanto muutenkin ollut kovin kiinnostuskiikareiden alla, ja nyt on tämän myötä projetki polkaistu edes jotenkin käyntiin. Episodimainen kerronta toimii yllättävän hyvin ja synkkää suomalaista sielunmaisemaa kuvataan oikein hienolla tavalla. Sulevi Peltolasta olen aina tykännyt ja jä"

Elokuvia joista jäi pahamieli :´( (5 movies items)

"Krapulassa kävin ostamassa kun ilmestyi... krapulassa katsoin yksin... kovin yksin. Hyvä elokuva. Todenmukainen ja karu. Ajattelin elokuvan ostaessani, että hyvä elokuva parantaa kummasti oloani kanuunassa... olisi pitänyt olla järkevä ja ottaa komedia siihen mielentilaan. Tästä jäi kummittelemaan yhden viikon kestänyt alakulo ja kuvotus... Perhokalastajapokerihain seksikohtaus, sekä syvästi masentunut imuritappaja, maustettuna perheväkivallalla ja kuolemalla... Jotenkin tuntui, e"

"TV, re-watch Too over-the-top and underlining a "feel-bad" film to really hail as a great movie but still it's probably the best Solar Films production until now. Another fault is how fucking dead seriously the film takes itself, there is little intentional comedic moments in it. Therefore, I decided to take the whole film as a black comedy this time which made it pretty entertaining. The acting's very good here and there and Jasper Pääkkönen is even bearable."

"Paha maa, 2005, dir. Aku Louhimies. Paha maa is based on Leo Tolstoy's short story which is also a basis of Robert Bresson's last film, L'Argent. The film tells the story of many seemingly uninvolved characters whose lives intervene through the tragedies caused by forged money made by one of the characters."

"11.05. Noin vuosi sitten kuin katsoin en tiedä mikä oli vikana, sillä silloin en tästä pahemmin välittänyt. Uusintakatselu osoittikin loistavaksi. Synkkä ja surullinen draama, jossa ärsyttävät näyttelijät (esim. Pääkkönen, Leppilampi, Summanen) eivät ärsytä."
