Vares – Yksityisetsivä 2004
Description: Vares, a movie noir comedy from Finland, is yet other twist on PULP FICTION. And, just in situation we miss the similarities of splattered blood mixed with outrageous incidents, the film explicitly references PULP FICTION and has a comedic stage in which two guys argue about McDonald's hamburgers. Still, VARES - PRIVATE EYE, by director Aleksi Mäkelä, manages to be type of fun even not especially original. The script has more characters than the screenwriter can handle, leaving the audience frequently confused about who is doing what and why. The two greatest scenes are one about a wacky wedding and other about a guy who answers a cell smartphone call while he is busy enjoying the pleasures of a sex parlor.
Released: 23 Jul 2004 Director: Aleksi Mäkelä Writers: Pekka Lehtosaari, Reijo Mäki (novel) Actors: Juha Veijonen, Laura Malmivaara, Jari Halonen, Markku Peltola Genres: Action, Mystery, Thriller

Vares – Yksityisetsivä Reviews:

Aleksi Mäkelä, the director of perfect Häjyt and Pahat pojat, offers us an hour and a half of nice and ellegant entertainment. The game hero Vares (Juha Veijonen) is a finish detective who sets out to support a girl called Eeva (Laura Malmivaara)in her risky pursuit for Russian mobs money. Based on the ebook of finish novelist Reijo Mäki, this film really boasts on nice characters. Vares himself is a nice guy, mostly hanging in his favorite pub with his boozing buddy Luusalmi (Markku peltola) in his spare time. A Mäkelä regular Samuli Edelmann portraits a tough cop working on both sides of the law. Then there's the hilarious assassin duo Hillosilmä- Munck and Tetsuo Sinkkonen played by Pekka Valkeejärvi and Kari Hietalahti. Director Jari Halonen is surely one the most devilish criminal in finish film history as lurid Karl E. Miesmann. Nice helping cast also contain Minna Turunen, Jorma Tommila and Santeri Kinnunen. Not just a detective story, but also a black comedy and nice old fashioned action film as well this one's probably the finest pop-culture film made in Finland in 2004. Nice work, hold on rockin' guys!


"Vares" was shown during Germany's "Fantasy Filmfest" - an international movie festival of fantasy, horror and movie noir - and I got to watch it. I'd been looking forward to seeing a Finnish film with English subtitles rather than the another method round (yes, I'm simple to please sometimes) but in addition to being Finnish, the film is also QUITE good! I didn't search anything to complain about, be it the acting, soundtrack or conversations. I had a nice laugh, so did my friends, and the audience applauded in the end.The film is exciting/tense, funny, well-paced, has some massive action without being too violent, and you just have to love the characters.I don't know whether this was a one timer, since there are more Vares books, I hope they produce a sequel some time in the future.


I have read all "Vares"-books by Reijo Mäki and I'm a large fan. When I heard that there will be film about Vares and Juha Veijonen will portray him, I was excited. The film was not a disappointment. Storyline follows quite exactly the book, but one thing makes me wonder. The jokes from the ebook were dismissed and screenwriter Pekka Lehtosaari has written a entire bunch of fresh ones. Well, maybe that's not terrible at all. Anyway, the characters are marvelous - never before in Finnish film has been so many superious characters - and casting for them just fantastic. Especially Jari Halonen as ruthless Miesmann and Kari Hietalahti as half finnish/half Japanese hit-man Tetsuo Sinkkonen. And of course Juha Veijonen in the title-role. Laura Malmivaara is also wonderful - as are almost each actor in this movie. Aleksi Mäkelä is number one action-director of Finland and he won't allow us down this time around. The soundtrack is also fine. I'll give VARES 9/10.
