Dir: Aki Kaurismäki

Finland 2023

With: Alma Pöysti, Jussi Vatanen

In modern-day Helsinki, two lonely souls in search of love meet by chance in a karaoke bar. However, their path to happiness is beset by obstacles - from lost phone numbers to mistaken addresses, alcoholism, stray dogs, cold streets and crap Finnish architecture.

But love finds a way, sort of.

Winner of the Jury Prize at the Cannes Festival the brilliant slow wit of cult director Aki Kaurismäki shines like a light in a very dark world.

Funny, unique, life affirming.

“A gentle, profound, hopeful cinematic gem about the human condition that is of the times yet timeless” New Indian Express
