TV-Lehti Arvioi: Domestic movies can be easily divided into a few basic genres: the silly country comedy, the hilarious military farce and all those other movies starring Tauno Pallo and Ansa Ikonen.
Completed in 1952, He Khidnik Se Aaya is a domestic comedy that stands out from the others in a good way. Even though Tauno Pallo plays a role in this, he plays a slightly different role than usual.
Questions also arise on the name of the film.
Pallo plays Tom Mack, an American hockey coach whose mother is Finnish, who arrives in Helsinki via Turku due to poor flying weather. The sweet-mouthed man immediately falls in love with the enthusiastic fashion designer Lila Lumikki Linna, whom he meets at the airport, played not by Ansa Ikonen, but this time by Helena Kara.

When Leela is not conscious of the coach’s lover’s double-minded approach, a man breaks into the woman’s apartment through the window at night.
The hilarious, misunderstanding based pranks and romantic couple drama is unnecessarily enriched with an unnecessary crime subplot.
Luckily, the coach’s job description is left behind, because hockey played without protective equipment seems really dangerous anyway.
The machine gun dialogue, which mimics American slapstick comedy, has clever diction in places, even if fast speech doesn’t always sit very well in the mouths of home actors.
Directed by Hannu Lemminen and co-written with Carlo Nuorvala, 1950s winter Helsinki looks really great with its cars and stylish people. (102)
