Pilkkuja Ja Pikkuhousuja

Fortnight 1993, Feature film, 1 h 24


We all likes poets, but does anyone still read poetry? There are days when one had better stayed in bed. A situation Tauno Lintunen, our poet, is about to experience: his marriage has failed, his debts pile up and the cover to his collection of poetry – long awaited by his publisher – is already in print, while he has was not written a single line. Faced with such a situation, it is better to link up with your past – even recent. But when you look upon it too closely, you find yourself embarking on a true quest of your own story, hoping to find it more attractive and harmonious. A story in which you’d both like to be the prince and the buffoon. But a man who loves the world in the way a dog bites his own tail often finds it difficult to cope with the harsh reality…
