I'm not sure how I feel about the deadpan delivery here. Sometimes it really works, but it may have caused a slight disconnect for me that didn't allow me to enjoy this like others did. It looks nice, the mood is right on, the comedy only occasionally works and whatever drama is there was insubstantial. I guess the reason I don't think it's great is that while it is technically quite good, it didn't succeed as a dramedy.

The similarly themed Le Havre was a rather sunny little movie. The Other Side of Hope sees Kaurismaki going back to a somewhat darker tone. All in all a nice job from a reliable auteur.

Kaurismäki keeps his sober style with a plot that tries to address the situation of migrants. It's a political movie; it wants to be relevant. The way the movie portrays finns look too caricatural (it's the intention,but it gets annoying). It's a very reasonable story until Khaled goes to work at the restaurant - from that point on it's just fiction elaboration. There are a couple of embarassing scenes (technically horrible). It was a much more pleasing experience than expected.

Effortlessly marries Kaurismäki's usual, charming storytelling into the message about the humanity of the refugees. It's a fun film right down to the local Helsinkian music but does get too silly at times.

I was pleasantly surprised by this film. It's a weird combination of funny, cruel, moving and absurd, but it works well. The few weaker scenes are made up by the great musical choices and the hilarious, deadpan acting.

A charming, simple and touching piece of filmmaking. Kaurismäki may be using some of his old tricks but they are brilliant for telling a contemporary story about refugees and Europe.

Cherishing a simpler time now vanishing doesn't mean bigotry or racism - inequality is universal - some of us struggle to survive, others are only asked of some human decency - it's easy to eat sushi in peace and send people back to die in war - a filmmaker may have said enough, but there are issues he and we should not ignore.

Immigration is surely a hot topic right now, but otherwise this is familiar territory for Kaurismäki: bars, restaurant and people lost in time, delivering ironic dialogue. As a Finn I was a bit irritated by how Kaurismäki made the bureaucracy and system look a lot worse than it is, and there's plenty of drama and injustice even without that taking kind of artistic freedom. Also, at least some kind of motivation for the racists would have been nice. Now they just picked on Khaled for no reason.
