Cleveland theatrical premiere!
Finland, Germany, Sweden | 2016 | Juho Kuosmanen
This sweet, modest, dryly funny, and occasionally melancholy debut feature was one of the most endearing and acclaimed debut films of last year, winning its first-time director the “Discovery” prize at the 2016 European Film Awards. Set in 1962 Finland (and inspired by a real person), the movie tells of a country baker turned boxer who contends for the world featherweight championship at the same time he is trying to win the woman of his dreams. So he’s conflicted; does he want to be a national hero or just a simple lover and suitor? A boxing film like no other! “Entirely remarkable.” –Variety. Subtitles. DCP. 92 min.
