So many films, so little time. CineCola highlights a number of UK (and, possibly, Ireland) theatrical releases for the month of May.
10 – THE OTHER SIDE OF HOPE (Aki Kaurismäki, Finland / Germany)
Release date: May 26 (limited, 25+)
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.
