Prince of the Hit Parade

Iskelmaprinssi

In his assured first feature film, Juha Tapaninen pays a cheerful, good-natured tribute to the pop-youth culture of the early 1960s in Finland. The teenage heroine yearns to be an airline hostess or, better still, a singer, and leaves town with her boyfriend, a would-be racing driver. Light as a souffle, this musical combines past and present with flair and verve.
