Synopsis

Timo is an esteemed concert pianist whose personal life is on the rocks. One day Timo finds an older, shabby-looking man at his door. The man, Leo, turns out to be his father who left the country when Timo was three — and hasn’t been in touch in 35 years.

Our take

You may know the lovely cinema of garage-rock auteur Aki Kaurismäki, but his brother Mika is in fact just as prodigious a filmmaker who dexterously and with pleasure jumps from genre to genre. Here’s his Finnish take on the buddy comedy road movie, proving Americans hardly have a claim on the idea!
