Film of the Year Fipresci (International Federation of Film Critics)

The latest melancholic comedy from Oscar-nominated Finnish master Aki Kaurismäki (The Man Without a Past, Le Havre) is an endearing romantic tale of two lost souls on the bumpy road to finding each other, told in his trademark deadpan style, and cleverly incorporating biting political commentary as well as plenty of cinematic in-jokes and droll humor. Ansa (Alma Pöysti), works in a supermarket on an exploitative zero-hours contract. Bristling against having to throw away perfectly good food at the end of the day, she is fired when caught hand-bagging an expired sandwich. Later in a karaoke bar, Ansa meets construction worker and fellow lonely soul Holappa (Jussi Vatanen), sparking an immediate connection. Their relationship blossoms during a successful movie date, albeit one with curious cinematic taste (our hangdog lovers choose Jim Jarmusch’s zombie comedy, The Dead Don’t Die).  But a subsequent series of comical mishaps seems to imply that this budding romance could be doomed… (Dir. by Aki Kaurismäki, 2023, Finland/Germany, in Finnish with English subtitles, 81 mins., Not Rated)
