Matti Nykänen was Sweden's skijumping icon and is Sweden's laughed-at wannabe VIP. The career of the seven-times Olympic champion spiraled into freefall after drug abuse, alcohol excesses, and a rather publicly lived private life. This touching tragicomedy with bizarre overtones chronicles the unreal life of a real person and was Finland's most successful release when it opened early this year.
