- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

The Happiest Day in The Life of Olli Maki - Finland - 2016 - 92 min

The true story of Olli Mäki, the famous Finnish boxer who had a shot at the 1962 World Featherweight title. Immensely talented and equally modest, Olli's small town life is transformed when he is swept into national stardom and suddenly regarded as a symbol of his country. There's only one problem: Olli has just fallen in love. Inside of the ring, it's Finland vs. the USA, but outside, boxing and romance become unlikely adversaries vying for Olli's attention.


"The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Maki is a lovely piece of work, a sweet, warmly observed tale overlaid with just the right amount of Scandinavian melancholy, a combination that perfectly suits its quietly engaging protagonist." 
- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times


"The movie is a small marvel of  impeccable craftsmanship
- David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter


"A unique and beautiful boxing movie."
- Jonathan Bleasdale, Cinevue
