The Other Side of Hope [12A]

Finland/2017/108mins/12A. Dir: Aki Kaurismäki With: Sakari Kuosmanen, Sherwan Haji, Ville Virtanen, Kati Outinen.

Retired salesman Wikstrom opens a restaurant and crosses paths with a hard working Syrian refugee and musician, at the risk of upsetting the authorities.

"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."
