Radio tulee hulluksi ("The Radio Goes Insane") (1952) is a Finnish comedy directed by Matti Kassila as a sequel to the preceding year's "Radio tekee murron". Unlike Kassila's other works, the movie has fallen into obscurity because of legal issues relating to its broadcast rights, which resulted in it being shown on television for the first time in June 2007.

Plot synopsis

The ambitious reporter Toivo Teräsvuori is disappointed when ordered to report in an agricultural show in Mäntsälä. Instead, he convinces his superior to let him do a reportage using a hidden microphone to gauge people's reactions on being asked outlandish questions. Things start to go wrong when the police are informed of the apparently-incoherent reporter who also appears to be talking to himself, and they come to the conclusion that Teräsvuori must be insane. Despite being committed into a mental asylum, he continues to make light of the situation, only becoming alarmed when the doctors there concur in the verdict regarding his mental health. Faced with the prospect of uncomfortable tests and treatments, he starts looking for a way to escape.fi [http://www.leffatykki.com/pages/index.php?submit=review&elokuva_id=4681 Film review at leffatykki.com] ]

Reception

The film received only lukewarm reviews upon its release, which was a contributing factor on its being relatively unknown in comparison to Kassila's other works.

Distribution

"Radio tulee hulluksi" had its premiere on 14 March 1952. Its television premiere came 55 years later, on 5 June 2007, on YLE Teema. The reason for the long wait was mostly due to producer Teuvo Tulio, who held the rights to the movie, and didn't want to give them away. Only after his death in 2000, rights to the film were granted to the Finnish Film Archive.
