Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
In this Finnish-German comedy two mis-fit men discover that they need more than body language to express their interest in two travelling women. Cigar smoking, coffee slurping Valto works at home for his mother. The day she runs out of coffee is the day he locks her in a cupboard and takes-off after first swiping the cash from her purse. Before hitting the road, he picks up Reino, his oily-haired buddy with rock-n-roll affectations. Together they cruise the back roads of Finland. Reino guzzles vodka and Valto his coffee. Two comely hitchhikers appear. They are the thin Tatiana from Estonia, and the chunky Klaudia from Russia. Tatiana only knows enough Finnish to ask for a lift. Both women seem interested in the two men who are both too intimidated to speak. The four travel in silence and then spend an innocent night in a hotel.
