With hilarious sight gags, poker-faced one liners and a toe-tapping rockabilly soundtrack, Kaurismäki’s latest film balances his unparalleled wit with a pressing critique of the unforgiving bureaucracy that greets vulnerable asylum seekers in modern-day Europe. Humane and sincere, it’s proof of cinema’s power to tell stories that matter, with beauty and heart.

Devilishly funny, economically constructed.” – Ryan Gilby The Guardian.

Gorgeous, cuttingly poignant.” – Tim Robey, The Telegraph.
