The Other Side of Hope

The Other Side of Hope

It’s at once honest and artful, a touching and clearsighted declaration of faith in people and in movies. – A.O. Scott, New York Times

A Telluride By The Sea 2017 favorite. This wry, melancholic comedy from Aki Kaurismäki, a clear-eyed response to the current refugee crisis, follows two people searching for a place to call home. Displaced Syrian Khaled (Sherwan Haji) lands in Helsinki as a stowaway; meanwhile, middle-aged salesman Wikström (Sakari Kuosmanen) leaves behind his wife and job and buys a conspicuously unprofitable seafood restaurant.

NR • 1h40m • Finland (subtitled)
