The syrian guy is so kaurismakian, so determined when makes his eruption from the black coal an ed then takes a shower, so obsesive and serene in spite of his harsh exile of survival refugee.

A good movie

To be honest, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since it was directed by Aki KaurismĂ€ki, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, it had been a while since I have seen a movie from this director, probably almost 10 years, but within a few mins, I immediately recognised his work.

A good movie

“To be honest, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since it was directed by Aki KaurismĂ€ki, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, it had been a while since I have seen a movie from this director, probably almost 10 years, but within a few mins, I immediately recognised his work. Indeed, KaurismĂ€ki has a unique visual style, all his movies have the same dreary mood, as if Finland must be the most depressing country in the world and, of course, there is his deadpan humor, probably his most famous trademark. This time, his movie was focusing on the immigration crisis. Sure, you could say that his previous movie 'Le Havre' was also dealing with this topic but, in this case, you could see how it was handled in Finland which was quite interesting. Basically, like most c” read more

"Come giĂ  in 'Miracolo a Le Havre', la capacitĂ  di raccontare il dramma dei profughi con il sorriso e una venatura surreale che contribuisce in modo notevole al fascino. Anche qui piacevolmente fuori dal tempo (o almeno con riferimenti temporali vaghissimi), la vicenda di Khaled che, arrivato in Finlandia per caso, cerca di rimanerci facendo arrivare anche la sorella si mischia a quella dello sbilenco ristorante che finisce per assumerlo in una storia esile ma di grande personalitĂ . Facce mera"

"20.3. Kovin valitettavaa olisi, jos tÀmÀ nyt olisi Akin viimoinen. HyvÀÀ yhteiskunnallista draamaa Suomen maan ankeudesta ja maailman lohduttomuudesta. NÀyttÀvÀt lavasteet, joista nyt on valitettavaakin mediakeskustelua elokuvan julkaisun jÀlkeen kÀyty."

"A smart and smartly composed film with dual narratives colliding by the end, with both supporting one another. Either alone would be too depressing or too much of funny bits that wouldn't work as a film. Through this structure it avoids the most traditional narrative trappings of a KaurismÀki-film, and it's also a really positive one, save for that whole part about all these Finnish characters being terrible racists more or less. But at least they're accepting racists. Uh. On the bright side th"

"12.4 Missasin tÀmÀn Teemalta, mutta ei hÀtÀÀ, sillÀ kirjasto on lÀhellÀ. Akilta mukavan ajankohtainen elokuva turvapaikanhakijoista ja maahanmuuttajista. Itse olisin toivonut enemmÀn suomalaisuuden kuvaamista pÀÀhenkilö Khaledin nÀkökulmasta. Sakari Kuosmasen kauppamatkustaja/pokerihai/kapakoitsija tuntui vaan vievÀn liikaa huomiota tyypillisenÀ KaurismÀki-protagonistina. Kuosmasen ja Khaledin tarinat ajelevat erikseen kahdella rattaalla ja risteÀvÀt lisÀksi liian vÀhÀn ke"

"6.4. (Yle Areena) Aki tekee maahanmuuttoaiheisen leffan, ihan kiva juttu. Jotkut vitsit toimivat paremmin, mutta vÀlillÀ niiden taso on turhan hassua makuuni. Olisin toivonut kuivempaa lÀhestymistÀ esimerkiksi Saken ravintolahankkeeseen. Vioistaan huolimatta kelvollinen leffa, joka on ohjalleen uskollisen nÀköinen, eikÀ mielestÀni sorru liikaa pastissiksi tai parodiaksi."

"After reading the reviews I was expecting a bit more funnier film that I got. But even if the comedy didn't work that well for this was a good Aki KaurismÀki movie."
