Matti( Visual )

Den kjente finske skihopperen Matti Nykänen vant alt som var mulig i karrieren: fire olympiske gullmedaljer, sju verdensmesterskap og fire World Cup-mesterskap. Da karrieren var over, kom imidlertid andre og mer problematiske sider av hans personlighet frem i offentlighetens lys. Hele Finland var på fornavn med den spede gutten. Også i Norge ble Matti et kjent navn blant sportsfansen. Man følger her Matti fra hans stjernestatus som nasjonalhelt til den brutale virkeligheten som fulgte etter at han la vekk skiene. Filmen blir beskrevet som en tragikomedie basert på det uvirkelige livet til en virkelig person. Filmen fikk terningkast 1-4
