Täältä tullaan, elämä! Reviews:

Jussi (Esa Niemelä) is a student on a unique class for problematic youths in a school in East Helsinki during the punk rock era of the late 1970s. Many of his classmates come from broken homes and display various signs of rebellion vs different authority figures, something that is only understood by their type teacher "Pappa" (Pertti V. Reponen). After getting in problem with the school once again, Jussi runs away from his home and spends days wandering around the town, with or without his classmates Pete and Lissu (Tony Holmström and Kati Outinen). Can there be a sensible solution for his desperate escape?The movie mainly utilizes a non-flashy documentary-like approach to its troubled characters. The rawness is effectively emphasized by beginning the movie with footage of an authentic childbirth ("Life, here I come" indeed!) and a punk rock concert of Pelle Miljoona that sets the mood for the storyline excellently. Real to the realistic style, the characters are not portrayed as badass road punks; most of the time they don't talk very much and often just run away when confronted, but the atmospheric style has its issues too. Since the young actors were all amateurs, they often cannot carry the quiet scenes with their charisma or screen presence only, and we are not left with much to play during the long wandering sequences like Jussi and Pete's drunken night out. Occasionally the movie catches a fleeting feel of fragility beautifully though, such as when Jussi sadly crawls under a playground slide to sleep. The greatest one of the young actors is clearly Kati Outinen who has soon appeared in many Aki Kaurismäki films, but Esa Niemelä as the protagonist Jussi also succeeds decently in his first of only two credited acting jobs. None of the adult actors give any reasons to complain either.Personally I think very fondly of the setting in East Helsinki since I was born and raised there and recognize many of the territories seen in the film, but even when observed from a more objective mission of view, the gray infrastructure suits the overall style very neatly. Contrasting with the bleak suburb, the another main setting of the storyline is the town center with its colorful lights and busy streets. Especially the dramatic climax on the wet, gleaming roads and the ledge of the City-Center building (a.k.a. "Makkaratalo") looks very nice and ends the tale of modern anxiety powerfully.I absolutely loved Täältä tullaan, elämä! when I first saw it, but after few rewatches I've noticed that it doesn't quite keep up as strongly as I first thought it would. Some tightening of the pacing and better helping actors should have helped the whole, but there's plenty to like in the movie as it is actually too. The apathetic atmosphere, lack of interest from the parents and the innocent relationship of Jussi and Lissu ring true, and the visuals are in tune with the story, so ultimately the movie is a fairly enjoyable effort and well worth checking out at least once.


As a Finnish and Helsinki citizen I search this film to be one of the greatest Finnish films ever. I'd label it as "Finnish Neo-realism" if there ever was such a genre, because it represents the early-80s Helsinki in such a realistic method that it is almost part documentary. I was a child in Helsinki those days, and I remember my town like it was in the picture. Cold, hostile and full of concrete:)I like the method this film is shot, it's not trying to be cool or "right" looking all the time. I guess Tapio Suominen worked with a minimum team on the roads of Helsinki. Partly due to fact that Finnish cinema was going downhills quick (or was already in the bottom) and there was no cash to spend around, but also because it worked well with the DIY-punk attitude of film and the look. I love the method this film looks. It looks very much like the early 80s were in Finland, sort of DDR-grey, dull and pale.I just LOVE the method the characters speak in this movie, how they act and behave. I'm not sure what "tarkkailuluokka" is in English (sort of unique class for disturbed and antisocial youth, who can't cope with normal classes in school), but like the attitude was in those days and in this movie, the children who were in "tarkkailuluokka" were thought to be destined for criminal / jail career. The children in this film are very much like those in my youth. Of course there are reasons for this behavior, kids' parents drinking, not being there for the child etc. Issues that are universal. It's a storyline of a young soul, who eventually will be killed in the process, because there is no zone for dreamers.Director Kaurismäki found his trusted actress Kati Outinen from this movie, in her first major film role, and she was as unbelievable as ever.


This film brings me some frightening childhood memories. This was the reality I was growing up in and it explains why I never went to the toilet at school. Watching this I became also relieved because I got an insight into the issues the bigger guys had and I actually understand that much of my fears were exaggerated.I am sorry, and I am well aware that this film is not about me but "Täältä tullaan, elämä" is a trip to my private Stone Age, the early eighties when all the bullies at school relieved their frustrations by listening to punk rock and smashing some things into pieces. I didn't understand anything about that young anarchy back then but this film gave me a valuable insight.The idea of the film is the most ordinary one: a young man discovering life's mysteries by learning by trial and error. Nothing surprising but it is interesting because it is about life. There are however some stereotypic characters, like the over-dominant school principal, but the unique class teacher hero seem to have some another lvl too than the teacher's one.The man who lead the main role hardly ever appeared in any another film, and he now does very tiny acting in this too. He's just quiet for the most of the time. The fanatics of Kati Outinen receive to spot her as the woman of the story.
