For media educator

Detective agency Henkka ja Kivimutka is based on Kalle Veirto’s children’s book series of the same name, which started in 2008 and is still ongoing. The story of the film is inspired especially by the first book in the series. Pantyhose found in the neighbor’s hedge and an ax lying next to the red liquid on the asphalt make Henka, who has a vivid imagination, suspect murder. Enthusiastic about detective stories, Henkka has founded a detective agency with her expressive friend Kivimutka, which after the school day begins to investigate the case.

Solving the riddle requires interrogating the entire neighborhood, and the two get to know each other’s weirdest neighbors through their investigations. In the tradition of Finnish children’s films, the caricatured adults are largely useless, but harmless characters in the children’s adventures and one of the detective duo’s slightly scary neighbors turns out to be gentle. The film deals with the typical everyday life challenges of preadolescent boys, such as friendship, crushes, and going to school. Emotional skills are also discussed when both the main characters and, at the end of the film, the side characters get to verbalize their fears. In boys’ imaginations, everyday situations become more colorful, but imaginations are not always needed for excitement. A nasty youth gang on dirt bikes harasses the detectives and causes a few threatening situations, which, however, are resolved quite quickly. (Source: Media-again. fi)
