Rotten Tomatoes


Mixing comedy with the drama of life, this story follows a refugee who finds support due to the good will of a restaurant owner in Helsinki who offers the refugee a job after finding him sleeping behind his restaurant. Aki Kaurismaki directed this movie with his trademark humane touch and is very clear about his politics of being an ‘inclusive’ European.
