      Leslie Felperin Guardian Litja and Perankoski are especially funny in the early stages as their mutual frustration with one another comes to a slow boil. Rated: 3/5 Apr 21, 2016 Full Review Alissa Simon Variety This comic romp boasts the sort of humor that can be appreciated by anyone who thinks the world is going to hell in a handbasket. Sep 12, 2014 Full Review Janire Zurbano Cinemanía (Spain) [Director Dome] Karukoski guides us on a journey of reflection, where distance is not so much geographic, but emotional. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 3/5 Jan 12, 2019 Full Review Alex Heeney Seventh Row It's honest, funny, and heartbreaking, and I can't wait to see it again. Aug 14, 2017 Full Review Luis Martínez El Mundo (Spain) A brilliant comedy that comes out of a terrible situation. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 3/5 Sep 28, 2016 Full Review Craig Takeuchi Georgia Straight Although this solid and entertaining domestic comedy takes a while to move beyond predictable generational clashes, the story develops more dynamically after Dad's Achilles' heel is revealed.

      john s In the 1976 Olympics Lasse Viren cemented his place as the premier long distance runner in world with a 5,000 and 10,000m double, matching his 1972 feat. Not much has gone right for Finland since. At least not according to grandpa. Grumpy old men is a long standing comedic device in the film industry, for very good reason. Generation gaps leads to the funny. Throw in country versus city living and we have the knee-slapping funny. Add the futuristic fangled electronic age devices to the mix and the rib-hurting funny ensues. Pretty standard stuff, but there's a nostalgic sadness when grandpa is thrown into modern city life. He's sexist, racist, overbearing and stubborn. And sometimes he's right. Lessons are learned, both from the old man, and from his ultra modern offspring, as classes and generations meet, argue, fight and crash cars. Looking back with rosy glasses, grandpa pines for the good old days, though when the glasses come off we see a history much more complex. In the end, it's not a matter of who is right, and who is wrong, it is just about being, and moving on. - hipCRANK Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Nappiin osuneet näyttelijävalinnat ja hyvä ohjaus (by Dome Karukoski). Hauska, tän leffan jälkeen on ollut hymy huulilla koko loppupäivän! :D Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review markus m A brilliantly executed film especially in terms of cinematography that at no point settles on just being funny or just being sad but that throughout somehow manages to be both at the same time.
