If you want escapism far away from La La Land, Kaurismäki, the Finnish master of melancholy wit is your man. His world is a place where jobs are a barely tolerated necessity, everybody smokes and drinks, 1950s/60s vintage clothes, cars, bars and uniforms are preferred; things go off at half-cock and are met with deadpan responses and biting remarks. It’s an enjoyable place to escape to, even though you have to be tough to inhabit it. Night-time mood lighting out of Edward Hopper paintings predominates and, just as in old westerns, there are men and women of honour and generosity, and some who have none.

‘[Kaurismäki's] new feature...is a typically deadpan and brilliantly observed comic study of the plight of a fictional asylum seeker in Finland’. Geoffrey Macnab,The Independent
