WINNER: SILVER BEAR BEST DIRECTOR, BERLIN FILM FESTIVAL 2017

Aki Kaurismäki's new film is a heart-warming, funny, melancholic tale  of the friendship between a Syrian refugee and a restaurant-owner.

Khaled, a young Syrian refugee, arrives in Helsinki as a stowaway and  applies for asylum. Meanwhile, travelling salesman Wikström decides to  change his life, and invests in an unprofitable restaurant. When the  authorities deny Khaled's application for asylum, he decides to stay on  illegally, and it is then that he meets Wikström outside the  restaurant. After a minor disagreement, Khaled is hired to work in the  restaurant and finally finds some refuge, but it's far from permanent.

Kaurismäki says that the film is an attempt to shatter the "way of  only seeing refugees as either pitiful victims or arrogant economic  immigrants invading our societies." With his unique sense of humour and  fundamentally optimistic vision of the world, he achieves a great deal  more than that.

"It's difficult to imagine anyone coming away from Aki Kaurismäki's  gorgeous tragicomedy about the refugee crisis in Europe, the challenges  of the restaurant business and the rewards of self-reinvention without  feeling gentle elation sparked by the story's evidence of human kindness  amid cruelty and indifference." – THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
