The Other Side of Hope features the familiar idiosyncrasies of the auteur, Aki Kaurismäki: gorgeous cinematography by Timo Salminen, sublime production design, ironic one-liners and deadpan dialogue. Winner of the Silver Bear for Best Director at the Berlin International Film Festival 2017, The Other Side of Hope is a Chaplin-esque fable brimming with unsentimental humanism that celebrates the unlikely friendship between two men from different worlds—Khaled, a Syrian refugee, and restauranteur Wikström, who lives in Helsinki.

Directed by Aki Kaurismäki
Language: In Finnish, Arabic and English (PG – Some violence)
