Finland’s master of deadpan comedy, Aki Kaurismäki (Leningrad Cowboys Go America, The Match Factory Girl, Le Havre), returns with the story of an unlikely friendship between a Syrian asylum seeker and an elderly Finnish restaurant owner. It’s a beautiful, timely film from one of the world’s leading masters of dry comedy. Khaled arrives at the port of Helsinki concealed in a coal container, fleeing war-torn Syria to seek asylum in Finland. Dazed and frustrated by the monolithic administration he encounters at the detention centre, he makes a break for it. There he meets Wikström, a former shirt salesman who has recently left his alcoholic wife for a new life as a bachelor restaurateur. Together they help each other to navigate the adversities they face in these unfamiliar and often baffling new worlds.
