The latest bittersweet offering from Finland’s cinematic ambassador won the Silver Bear for best director at this year’s Berlin Festival. Khaled, an illegal Syrian refugee, meets Wikström, a former salesman who buys a rundown restaurant after winning money at poker.

In this particularly poignant comedy-drama, the Finnish director once again enthralls viewers with his unique perspective, at once caustic and compassionate.
