The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Maki (12A)

Finland/2016/92mins/12A/subtitles. Dir: Juho Kuosmanen. With: Jarkko Lahti, Oona Airola, Eero Milono

Modest underdog Olli “the Baker from Kokkola” prepares for his big boxing fight with the expectations of the Finnish nation on his shoulders. After falling in love however, it becomes increasingly clear that boxing is no longer the most important thing in his world. A resolutely low-key black and white romantic tale conjuring up a delightful mood of bittersweet melancholy.

Winner Un Certain Regard Cannes Film Festival 2016

"So gracefully does The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Maki sidestep the formulaic mold of struggle, perseverance and simple victory or defeat that it could almost be considered an anti-fight picture. "
