"(14.04.2010) Rovaniemi on paska paikka. Ei siellä ole kuin vitusti lunta ja kesällä kylmä. Sääli sitä, joka kaupungissa joutuu asumaan ja herra armahtakoon poloista, jonka kohtaloksi on muodostunut koko elämänsä viettäminen tuossa pohjoisessa porojen valtakunnassa. Onneksi sentään haulikon piipun ommaan suuhun tuppaamisellekin löytyy käypä vaihtoehto, nimittäin ison ja korean Ranskanmaan huumeongelmaisilleen jakama heroiininkorvaajalääke Subutex (R), ruiskun kautta suonensis"

Finnish Films I'd Recommend for a Foreigner (49 movies items)

"Jani is a normal 19-year old guy living in Rovaniemi, Lapland. Rovaniemi is far away from other big towns and the so-called civilization, even in Finland's standards. This film's director, Joonas Neuvonen, was Jani's friend. He was also an aspiring film maker, always recording his own life, Jani's life and the lives of their friends on video tapes. This film is the story of Jani during the years 2003-2004, made from these tapes. For years now Jani has been using drugs, mainly Subutex (Buprenorp"

"Watched 3.3.2011 (Digiboxsi /yle2) Todella hieno kuvaus suomalaisesta huumenuoresta janista joka haluaa pois suomesta ja pääsekin hetkeksi pakoon. Leffa oli kuvatu kotivideo tyylillä joka teki siitä hyvin amatöörimäisen vivahten joka kyllä tähän leffan sopii kuin nyrkki silmään "

"If anything, Reindeerspotting made me tremendously sad. I know some of my former friends have taken this very same path, and it's heartbreaking to watch. Jani doesn't seem like a bad person at all, just completely broken and fucked-up (in a sense), for whatever reason. It's difficult (and somewhat morally questionable) to rate one's anguish, but seeing as how this makes for very convincing educational material, its existence is justified."

Personal best of 2010 (10 movies items)

" Great finnish documentary about young drug addicts. The film focuses on Jani who has been doing drugs since he was just a teenager. He has lived his whole life in Rovaniemi, Finland. I found this very interesting and educating. The film doesn't preach but doesn't defend drug addicts. I would definitely recommend this one."
