THE HAPPIEST DAY IN THE LIFE OF OLLI MÄKI

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.
