The Bob Dylan of Finland! Juice Leskinen is a household name back home, but it is a chain-smoking, loudmouth antihero who we meet in this odd and hilarious biopic. It's the classic story of a rockstar’s fall into the abyss of alcohol abuse and megalomania, but it is told with intimacy and razor sharp dialogues carried by Juice’s unimpressed black humour. Director Teppo Airaksinen shoots on 35 mm and his previous short film won in Cannes.
