Jukka, 13, is coached in photography by his openly gay art teacher. With his dead father’s old camera, Jukka sees Johanna, a beautiful girl in her early twenties being physically abused by her stepfather. With the help of the local fire department, Jukka comes to her rescue. He quickly befriends the girl who works in a nearby supermarket, claims to become her manager and enters her in a beauty contest.
shallowness shines through first off, the acting is really horrible. the only decent performance is the main couple, but sjeez, where did they pick up the actors?
also at times the movie seems like an excuse for a selling soundtrack, which i believe it partly is, too, and that is just unacceptable.
on top it might seem like a movie that means well with the kid experiencing his first love and being deeper than everyone else, but the money that’s in the producers eye just klings away in the background.
