Riku Nieminen makes a credible run Juice Leskinen. Give strait the salon / Yellow Film & TV
Almost all finns will probably be some sort of image of the artist Juice Leskinen (1950-2006), and a wide range of her songs in their related memories and feelings. It is therefore delightfully bold, not a biography movie about Juice are left to do the kid gloves and subject to curry favor, as so very often in Finland is responsible for the process of the habit.
the Viewer to decide then to stay, should we go this time a little too much to the other extreme.
Singer, songwriter and poet Leskinen when describing Juice movie quite uncomfortable as an old drunk, who appeared instantly movie, at the beginning of selfish and arrogant öykkärinä. Certainly in juice are these seen in the movie tasks piirteitäkin been, but the man of the second half, sensitivity, shyness, and creativity, seemed to stay in the film almost completely in the dark.
Riku Nieminen makes Juicena handsome work. He slid that relation effortlessly the legend of big boots. Nieminen has told the role requires the physical sacrifice, because first he lost weight for the role and after fattening himself ten pounds to remind the older Juice.
Nieminen to sing in the movie, also the juice of the songs themselves and loved songs heard in the film several. The solution works fine and is the film as a whole certainly better than if the song would have been original versions.
Still Niemistä great the more plays, however, the juice of the Berry -a spouse-to-be Iida-Maria Heinonen . She creates the Juice for a character strong in a couple and build a run of the brave and strong women. Without Heinonen subtle and extremely sensitive interpretation of the film would be clearly weaker. the Mikko Alataloa actress Antti Tuomas Heikkinen that film, in turn, its much missed by lightness and humor.
Good actor performance in addition to best movie, is it credible zeitgeist. Juice is described in the film, which is currently the digital era as a rather exceptional and brave solution. This brings the movie visually excellent atmosphere and hämyisyys, good costume design and staging, manages to transport the viewer cleverly 1970s. A few times the pictures look a little too stale and inaccurate, but this kind of style errors is easy to forget the whole running well.
the Juice-the film starts to become a artist legend from school, pictures of the road to success and eventually comes to a serious substance abuse problem. Juice's childhood in the film describes only a few, quite detached from the feel of the scene. Could have been a better solution to leave these a little too clichéd and underline the scenes completely out.
it Is good that the film is quite clearly limited, and does not deal with the juice of the last illness tinged by years. Despite this, the film somehow faded and tired, in the end, doesn't fail to deliver on this ambitious story emotionally right to earn a decision.
Juice premiere on Wednesday 26.12.2018.
