THE HAPPIEST DAY

IN THE LIFE OF OLLI MAKI

Use the choke.

It's the knob between the seats.

Give it a little gas.

Can you reach?

Let's try something different.

Maybe this will work.

Everything's all right.

Let me take you out.

Thank you.

Don't get upset now.

Where are your parents?

Hi.

You must be Olli.

- Yes.

Where's Raija?

- She's inside.

Right.

Hello.

- Oh hello.

Oh hello.

- Hi.

Going somewhere?

- To the wedding.

What wedding?

What wedding?

Are you going dressed like that?

- I don't know.

Are they big?

- Yeah, a little in the front.

Let me put newspaper in them.

I heard your manager

is so full of himself -

that he put you

in the featherweight class -

because he didn't want you

in the same class -

he used to box in.

- Elis is a good guy.

Are you riding with us?

- No, in Olli's car. - Yes.

Use the choke.

It won't start.

- Try again.

Can you manage?

"If I speak in the tongues of men

or of angels, -

but do not have love..."

I heard they put you

in the bantam weight class.

No, I'm in the featherweight class.

Featherweight? Are they

lighter than bantam weight?

No, they're heavier. 57 kilos.

How much do you weigh now?

- What?

How much do you weigh now?

- A little over 60.

Isn't there a class between them?

- Bantam would be.

No, lightweight is between them.

How much do the bantams weigh?

- 53.5. They're very light.

Feathers are heavier than bantams?

Makes no sense.

Why aren't you competing in

the lightweight class? - Well...

Be quiet, kids.

Good luck.

"...faith, hope and love.

But the greatest of these is love."

Youth is the happiest time,

a truly blessed thing

Filled with joy and longing

in a seemingly endless spring

What are you doing?

- Trying to catch the fly.

Drink the milk up so we can

catch the fly with the glass.

Good job. Can I please have it?

Thank you.

What are we going to do with it?

- Let's kill it.

Let's release it.

- Let's eat it.

Shall we release it?

- Yes.

Let's eat it.

- It's gone.

Here you are.

Hi.

Yes. Dear guests

and the bride and groom.

I remember when you, Tuula,

were born.

It was a beautiful spring morning.

Love seems to be a serious thing.

The sun was shining,

and it was a bit cloudy.

It wasn't raining.

Olli. Olli, look.

All right.

The world champion has arrived.

Put your bags in here. Hi.

This is Raija.

- Hello. I'm Elis.

Did the trip go well?

- Yes.

Good. Please step in the car.

There's a boxing boom now.

Some people have been

asking me about the match.

That's good.

They'll come to the match.

I've been sparring

in the outdoor dance pavilion.

Outside? - Yeah, because

the match will be outside.

Damn good, as we'll be practicing

at the outdoor swimming pool.

Who are these people in the photos?

- That's Rocky Marciano.

Sure you know him?

One of the greatest.

He's got his own restaurant now.

Excellent food. We ate there.

You know who that is?

- No.

You have to know.

Sure you know. It's Frankie.

Frankie boy. Frank Sinatra.

We're friends. I took the photo.

- Right. That's something.

Who made this?

- Olli, you know what it is?

That's you when you won

the European Championship? - Yes.

I won the gold in 1951.

I fought Pierre Montan and won.

I knocked him out

in the last round.

That was the best day of my life.

Oh, it's Laila and the kids.

Hi.

The guests have arrived already.

Hi.

- This is Raija.

Take the sweater off.

Hi, I'm Raija.

- Hi.

Could you make the beds for them?

Will you be staying here or

somewhere else? - I'll stay here.

All right. Please make the beds

for them in the kids' room.
