The films of the day were judged by Martta Kaukonen.
(Finland 1943) The Minister’s daughter (screenwriter Lea Joutseno) works in the kitchen. The best thing about Valentin Vaala’s romantic comedy is the witty dialogue.
TV1 at 1:15 p.m.
Tup-akka strike ★
(Finland 1980) Gangsters (e.g. Vesa-Matti Loiri) crave the formula of a test tube adult. Spede Pasanen directed the sequel to his comedy Test tube adult and Simon angels. (K7)
Sub at 9 p.m.
The Boss ★★
(USA 2016) Ex-Financial Guru (screenwriter Melissa McCarthy) founds a biscuit company. The only bright spot in Ben Falcone’s dozen comedies is Peter Dinklagen’s funny side role as the protagonist’s competitor. (K12)
