Their path towards this honourable goal is clouded by the man’s alcoholism, lost phone numbers, not knowing each other’s names or addresses, and life’s general tendency to place obstacles in the way of those seeking their happiness.
This gentle tragicomedy, previously thought to be lost, is the fourth part of Finnish film master, Aki Kaurismäki’s working-class trilogy (Shadows in Paradise, Ariel, and The Match Factory Girl).
Recommended for ages 12+ for mature themes, drinking and cigarette smoking.
In Finnish with English subtitles.
Finland's official submission to the 96th Academy Awards for Best International Film.
