The Other Side of Hope

  • Director: Aki Kaurismäki
  • Cast: Sherwan Haji, Sakari Kuosmanen, Kati Outinen
  • Country: Finland
  • Year: 2017
  • Running time: 100'

Beautifully made, perfectly judged in every way, Kaurasmaki’s wonderfully droll humour is perfectly suited to this sweet story of a Syrian refugee taken in by the good people of Helsinki. Both hysterical and heartbreaking, this charming, humane comedy is enough to give you hope!

“the warmest, most life-enhancing film I've seen this year.” David Gillam, WOW Film Festival Director
