Before 'Miehen Työ', the last Finnish movie I've watched is 'Paha Maa' back in 2006. The one before that was 'Nousukausi' and the year was 2003... So you can obviously see the pattern. Not that many movies from my homeland attract my attention.
'Miehen Työ' I would categorize under the "worth seeing" section. I had my doubts about the movie before pushing the play button. My biggest fears were that the acting would be "woody" and the pace would be slow. Without forgetting the personality of my fellow citizens shown. You know, gloomy depressive, drunken Finns...
Well, my fears were uncalled for. 'Miehen Työ' was a very good movie about what men are ready to do for the sake of their family. Juha's being fired and he isn't ready to tell his depressed wife who's taking care of their children. He hangs out at a local gas station putting up ads of him working as a repair man. His first job turns out to be nothing that he thought it would be...
The acting was surprisingly good. Maybe I should see more often films from Finland. The two films mentioned in the beginning were actually very good. I'm happy to say that 'Miehen Työ' is my third good Finnish film in a row.
'Miehen Työ' has powerful drama, some occasional humor that works well alongside the moody subject. In the end there's also hope but will his family cope with the situation? Recommended if you're interested about foreign cinema.
A strong drama that unfortunately gets confusing towards the end.
