Critic Reviews for The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Mäki (Hymyilevä mies)

All Critics (57) | Top Critics (17) | Fresh (56) | Rotten (1)

  • J.P. Passi's hand-held black-and-white cinematography cries out for big-screen viewing.

    June 2, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • This is a very small film, with a big heart.

    May 10, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • How endearing to encounter a sports movie, if it can even be called that, that prints the man instead of his legend.

  • Mki is played by the small, sinewy, mildly puzzled Jarkko Lahti; the wonderfully warm Oona Airola plays his fiance, Raija. The black-and-white film pays careful attention to period detail and character, and less to the blood, sweat and tears.

    Top Critic
  • A lesson for our time? I can only hope.

    April 21, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • For the most part, that willingness to scale down and not go for the big, dramatic knockout ends up being refreshing. But it also occasionally results in a lack of dramatic urgency.
