The Other Side of Hope

Cinema

Directed by Aki Kaurismäki | 2017 | Finland | Finnish with English subtitles | Starring Sakari Kuosmanen, Sherwan Haji | 98mins | Certificate 12A

Finnish master Aki Kaurismäki returns with a comedy-drama informed by the ongoing migrant crisis in Europe.

Kaurismäki regular Sakari Kuosmanen stars as Wikstrom, a poker-playing restaurateur and former travelling salesman who crosses paths with a Syrian refugee (Sherwan Haji), part of a group newly arrived in Finland. The Other Side of Hope promises topicality and emotive heft via its study of that most pressing of global issues: the plight of the refugee. It was a deserving winner of the Silver Bear at this year’s Berlin Film Festival.
