The Other Side of Hope
Director: Aki Kaurismäki, Finland 2017, 100 minutes, Cert 12A

This gorgeous tragicomedy about the refugee crisis in Europe, from the acclaimed veteran director and master of deadpan wit Kaurismäki (Le Havre), interweaves the struggles of two men who have fled their homes – Khaled, a Syrian asylum seeker, and Wikström, a travelling shirt salesman who has walked out on his job and alcoholic wife and bought up a failing restaurant in Helsinki. A gently loving, comic fable about hope, full of warmhearted but unsentimental humanism.

“Combines poignancy with torrents of laughter” Tim Robey, Telegraph
