Watched the Finnish Un Certain Regard winner "The Happiest Day in The Life of Olli Mäki". A biopic of a boxer preparing for his big match but getting sidetracked by a love affair. It has certain charm, but felt a bit thin. A 60s movie pastiche in the vein of Karel Reisz, Lindsay Anderson or Milos Forman. Very nice 16 mm reversal stock monochromatic cinematography, but main character is a bore, could have been more interesting with his conflicted, desperate manager as the main character. Cute film tonally, but the lack of substance in the script department empties the film in a single viewing.

There’s a five movie boxset with English subtitles featuring Blue Week, August, Red Line, Inspector Palmu’s Error and The Glory and Misery of Human Life. It’s released by Illume LTD. I don’t think it’s a commerical release.repeat wrote:Fansubs are available for Inspector Palmu's Error (1960) and The Scarlet Dove (1961), but for the love of God let's move this conversation to the correct thread, you made my heart skip a beat there.
