Valentin Vaala was perhaps the only one in Finland on the golden age of our cinema who was talented enough to direct successful Hollywood-like comedies. He made this one in 1944 and I think it is one of his best. The screenplay by "Tet" is hilarious and Lea Joutseno gives a unbelievable performance as a daughter of a millionaire who accidently takes part in a robbery. Though movie has a lot of terrible actors and an unsatisfying final stage I enjoyed it very much and I will give it 10 points.
Many of actress Lea Joutseno's collaborations with director Valentin Vaala belong among the better Finnish movies of the Golden Era. In Dynamiittityttö Joutseno plays a rich businessman's sheltered daughter Marja Reijonen who is an avid fanatic of crime-themed pulp novels and fascinated by the "Dynamite Men", a gang of real-life burglars who are on the loose in the city. Due to a misunderstanding, Marja enthusiastically joins the gang thinking they are just actors hired by her mate Kari Honka (Tapio Nurkka) who plans pulling a prank on her...The energetic performances of the lead actors are truly the driving force behind the movie. The plot and the jokes are not particularly noteworthy by themselves, but the perky Joutseno and the suave Nurkka never let the mood to fizzle for a second. I also liked Rauha Rentola as Marja and Kari's naïve mate Lempi, but a unique mention gotta be given to the "Dynamite Men" themselves: Matti Lehtelä, Kaarlo Aavajoki, Veikko Huuskonen and Kyösti Käyhkö fit in the crook roles excellently.Almost everybody is overacting, but such stylization is perfectly acceptable in a film that resembles classic Hollywood screwball comedies in many ways: quick dialogue, hidden identities and a silly upper class woman are all there. Besides the performances, the film doesn't come across as highly memorable but it's a fairly amusing piece of entertainment in any case. Joutseno fanatics have no reason to miss it out, and I would also suggest it to mates of old talky comedies in general.
