Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
This home-grown satire depends for its humor to a great extent on a keen knowledge of the Finnish language and of current events (1991) in that country. Otherwise, it mixes the conventions of romantic drama with some horror-film elements. In this story, which is a sequel of the film Kuutamosonaatti, the mother who was frozen to death and one of the two retarded brothers who burned to death are revived in a sauna, since saunas are so health-giving. These two quite slow country boys haven't a clue what to do in Helsinki, so they stumble into all sorts of amusing and gruesome situations. One particularly memorable scene has them encountering a 1918 Red Guard unit, now zombies, who were buried in a swamp during the Finnish civil war.
