#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – The Grump is a man from the past. A man who knows that everything used to be so much better in the old days. Pretty much everything that’s been done after 1953 has always managed to ruin The Grump’s day. Our story unfolds as The Grump takes a fall from his basement steps, hurting his ankle. He has to spend a weekend in Helsinki to attend physiotherapy. The Grump doesn’t like this for four reasons: 1) He has to take a taxi. 2) He can’t take daily care of his wife, an Alzheimer’s patient. 3) He can’t drive, which means he might have to sit in a car with a female driver. 4) He has to spend time with his family. The daughter-in-law is a career woman, not keen to spend time with The Grump when he comes to the city. Her boss has given her the task to look after Russian businessmen supposed to close a major deal over the weekend. It doesn’t make her any happier when The Grump decides to help with the deal. Then The Grump has to face his useless son to become the father he never was, teaching his son how to take care of his loved ones. A thing The Grump has never been able to do. And somebody’s day will be ruined.
Plot: A stubbornly traditional eighty-year-old farmer – whose social attitudes verge on the prehistoric – raises hell when he is forced to move in with his sadsack, city-dwelling son and domineering daughter-in-law.

Funny and real!!
We went to see this in the GFT and we are are British Finnish couple. As a Brit I’ve been made to suffer many Finnish films and this was by far the best :). I really enjoyed it.
It was very funny and really made you think about the difference between generations, gender and culture- in fact I’m still thinking about the things in it that made me laugh and whether they were because my partner is Finnish, a man or suck in the past!
I thought the end the film was quite beautiful and showed an example of how even with age, experience and stubbornness we can still be wrong but realise the beauty in the people around us is a thing to treasure and love.
The world according to The Grump
I haven’t read any of the books before seeing the movie. Of course I did my background checks, and was first disappointed with the fact that there wasn’t much left of what I expected The Grump to be.
But the warmth oh Antti Litja’s character completely blew me away. Remember, he is The Grump, this is his movie. Maybe the story is a bit detached at certain times, maybe the plot is a bit shattered. But this is an old man’s story, this is HIS story. I expected him to be much more “against everything” … but he was a really warm character, really trying to do his best to understand a world he really couldn’t.
From his point on view, what would this world look like? Too busy, too broken, too cold. Maybe, the movie jumps a bit too much, and lacks continuity in the plot. It might lack some sense … but that’s exactly like the Grump sees it. So, maybe, the movie shows it exactly like it should.
