The Other Side of Hope

M Comedy Drama

Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for The Other Side of Hope at Dendy Newtown

Synopsis

A friend in need is a friend indeed.

The multi award-winning new comedy from beloved director Aki Kaurismäki (Le Havre, Drifting Clouds, The Man Without A Past) is a richly enjoyable and compassionate crowdpleaser about the friendship between a newcomer to Helsinki and a budding – if completely inexperienced – restaurateur. After arriving in Finland from Syria as a stowaway on a freighter, Khaled (superb newcomer Sherwan Haji) applies for asylum. Things don’t look encouraging, and not all locals present a welcoming face. But after crossing paths with stoic travelling shirt salesman-turned-entrepreneur Wikström (Sakari Kuosmanen), he finds an unlikely source of kindness and connection. When Khaled eventually receives news of his missing sister, Wikström hatches a scheme to help reunite the pair, but it seems getting out of Finland is much, much trickier than getting in…
