Irwin goodman rentun ruusu
Martti Suosalo transforms himself into the character of Irwin Goodman, a Finnish singer and takes us through the singer's life in the 1960s and 1970s. Written by his longtime friend and manager Vexi Salmi, the movie is apparently as close to the real life of Irwin as we can get. In addition to being the story of Irwin, the movie also looks at the transformation of Finnish society from the post-war years to the 70s and 80s.
