Miss Farkku SuomiJulkaistu:
The story follows 17-year-old Välde, who aims to secure a spot in a band, pursue fame, experience his first drunkenness, and fall in love with Pike, the most beautiful girl in the class. Välde is a teenager without a father, living in a one-bedroom apartment with his mother. He loves gritty music, Lou Reed’s lyrics, the New York Dolls, and David Bowie. While others spend time at discos, Välde cycles alone in the outskirts, capturing images in his mind of factory chimneys, deserted beaches, and rusty dumpsters.
Though Välde wants to fix the world’s injustices, he understands that he must first resolve his own life’s problems. Välde finds Sasu, and together they form a band called Torttu. They share the same taste in music, read “Musa” and “Soundi” music magazines, and notice the rise of punk in the world. But an unexpected turn occurs when Pike wins a beauty pageant, becoming “Miss Farkku-Suomi”. Things don’t go as Välde had hoped…
The movie received two Jussi Awards for Best Costume and Makeup Design. It’s based on Kauko Röyhkä’s autobiographical novel of the same name.
