TOIVON TUOLLA PUOLEN
Finland | 2017 | Aki Kaurismäki
A Syrian refugee hooks up with a novice Helsinki restaurateur in the deadpan, very funny, heartfelt new comedy from Finnish master Aki Kaurismäki. Like his previous movie Le Havre, Kaurismäki’s latest shows the human side of the European refugee crisis. “This is a world that reeks of cigarette smoke and cheap vodka, yet as always in the work of Finland's maestro of droll melancholy, the perfume that lingers longest is empathy.” –Hollywood Reporter. Shot (and shown here) on 35mm film. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. 100 min.
