Reviews

Helsingin Sanomat/Arja Aho 20.12.2010:

“Hanna Hemilä has directed a great documentary about an extraordinary person.”
“Hanna Hemilä on ohjannut hienon dokumentin erityislaatuisesta ihmisestä.”

Hufvudstadsbladet/Malin Slotte 20.12.2010:

“While the image of an impressive craftsman is portrayed, Paavo remains somewhat a mystery on a personal level. Paradoxically, it seems that this social talent does not let anyone easily into his private life.  Even the documentary does not manage to do it, however this is presumably an important aspect of the biography. Thus the documentary works splendidly nonetheless, some mysteries remain better unsolved.”
“Samtidigt som bilden av en imponerande yrkesman tecknas, förblir han något av mysterium på ett mera privat plan. Paradoxalt nog verkar denna sociala talang vara svår att komma nära in på livet. Det lyckas heller inte dokumentären med, men just detta är förmodligen en viktig poäng i denna livshistoria. Därför fungerar dokumentären utmärkt ändå, vissa mysterier mår bra av att bestå.”
