The Other Side of Hope poster

  • Limited-edition U.S. one-sheet, glossy finish 27" × 39.5" (rolled)

This wry, melancholic comedy from Aki Kaurismäki, a clear-eyed
response to the current refugee crisis, follows two people searching
for a place to call home. Displaced Syrian Khaled (Sherwan Haji) lands
in Helsinki as a stowaway; meanwhile, middle-aged salesman Wikström
(Sakari Kuosmanen) leaves behind his wife and job and buys a
conspicuously unprofitable seafood restaurant. After Khaled is denied
asylum, he decides not to return to Aleppo—and the paths of the two
men cross fortuitously. As deadpan as the best of the director’s work,
and with a deep well of empathy for its down-but-not-out characters
(many of them played by members of Kaurismäki’s ever-reliable stock
company), The Other Side of Hope is a bittersweet tale of human
kindness in the face of official indifference.
