The new film by cult Finnish director Aki Kaurismäki explores difficult realities in his own delightful style. The Other Side of Hope is a film in which the paths of a Finnish traveling salesman and a Syrian refugee cross. The film is fresh off its Berlinale 2017 success, where it earned Kaurismäki a Silver Bear award for Best Director.
