As Khaled, a young Syrian mechanic who has escaped Aleppo's living nightmare finds his way into Helsinki by accidentally stowing himself away on a coal freighter, on the other side of the town, Wikström, a joyless travelling salesman, experiences a profound mid-life crisis. Under those circumstances, Khaled and Wikström who are desperately looking for a fresh start will eventually cross paths, when the latter after an endless night of high-stakes poker buys himself a decrepit restaurant and offers Khaled not only shelter but also work. In the end, no one can say whether the Syrian refugee has a future in the Finnish capital, what is undisputed though, is that he will find an eccentric but affectionate new family.

I was lucky enough to get a hold of this DVD a few months ago and I can honestly say that I've never seen a film quite like it. The film is based on a play, and the actors are all of the same age. As an adult, I'm amazed at how realistic the story line is. Even the cinematography is the same as the play. I could go on and on about how this film is truly a gem. I highly recommend this film to anyone who has ever wanted to see something a little different. The acting is fantastic, the storyline is believable and the film leaves you with an unforgettable feeling. It's like being in a different place, a different time, and I recommend this film to anyone.

I watched this movie yesterday, and it was a great movie. It is a very funny movie, but it is also very romantic. If you like comedy, this is the movie for you. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes a comedy movie with a romantic twist. I give it 9 out of 10 stars. It is a movie that I will watch again and again. I like this movie, and I recommend it to anyone who likes a good movie.

In a world of violent movies, this is a breath of fresh air. The message of the film is powerful and touching. The acting is very good, but not so great. The story is good, but the script is weak. The director does a great job with the story. The movie starts slowly and keeps you guessing. At the end, you are like what was that? The ending is really sad. A lot of people will not like this movie. I enjoyed the movie very much. I recommend it to everyone.

In this film the character of the drunkard is played by a great actor, who is in love with a woman. The story of the drunkard and the story of the woman are so complex and so funny. It is hard to explain it. I think it is a good film. I like the idea of this film and I can recommend it to you.

What a film! Its the first time I have ever seen a film where the whole cast are so amazing! I thought the film was very funny and touching at the same time. It reminded me a bit of a buddy-comedy film, but with a great ending. The actors were all great and there were no weak spots. There is nothing to criticize about this film. I have not seen the other two films, so I am not sure if they are as good, but they are not bad either. The one that I have seen is more of a comedy, but the other one is more of a drama. If you are a fan of the trilogy, I suggest you watch this film.

I'm glad that I finally saw this movie. I'm a big fan of Nanni Moretti's work. His movies are always very realistic. But this one is a very good example of how a person can be turned into a criminal. I think that this movie is very well-written. I was very surprised by the way that it ended. It wasn't a happy ending. It was not a happy ending, but I liked the ending very much. I think that it's very well-written, and it's the best Italian movie I've seen so far. I hope that more Italian movies will follow this one. It is a very good movie.

The story is a good one. The two main characters have good chemistry and the movie is quite funny. But it is also a good movie, I really enjoyed watching it. If you are a fan of the actors, you will be delighted. The movie is not for everyone, it is more of a comedy and drama than a sci-fi movie. It is quite good and it will not disappoint.

The first time I saw this film, I didn't like it at all. I didn't like the fact that I didn't really get to know the characters, and the fact that I was being introduced to a lot of new ideas. I thought the film was a little bit slow. But when I watched it again a few months ago, I saw that the film was much better. I've watched it over and over again, and I have to say that it's one of the best films I've ever seen. I can't explain how good this film is, but I can tell you that you won't be disappointed. It's a film that is intelligent, funny, and poignant. It's a film that you can watch over and over again and still find something new. I highly recommend this film. It's a great film and I hope that you'll check it out. I know that you will.

A film about the treatment of people with mental illness in Ireland in the early 1970's. This film was filmed with a couple of real Irish people, who were involved in the production. It is a beautiful film about the social and emotional impact of mental illness. The young girl was very good, as was the boy. It was quite interesting to see how they dealt with the issues, the effects of mental illness, and the emotional consequences of the people's mental illness. A very good film.

I am not sure how to express how much I loved this film. I have only seen it once and I have been looking for it ever since. It is a simple story of the young couple's experience of finding a life together and how they deal with the things they have to deal with in their life. There is a great deal of drama, a lot of humor, and a lot of hope. I think that the ending is perfect, and I have to admit that I was a bit sad when it was over. I don't think that it was the ending that made me cry, but rather the realization that life can be so much more. I think that this film is a great movie, and I think that it is a film that I will be watching again and again. It is a perfect movie for all those who have been through a period of loneliness or just a period of life. It is very sad, but in a good way. It is a film that will keep you thinking and wondering about things that you have forgotten. And it will show you that life is much more than just the things we have and the things we have. If you don't believe that, then I think you will enjoy this movie.

The movie tells the story of the life of a very young girl and her relationship with her father, the love for her brother, and the ways to become the person she is supposed to be. The film has several beautiful scenes, the main one is when she is in the garden and the birds are singing in the air. It was a nice surprise to see her as a kid, because she looked so young and innocent. I think that the director did a very good job of telling the story. The characters in the film are very well developed. They are not very typical, and it's hard to tell what is going on, but it's not important. The dialogues are very good. The actors are very well chosen and give their best. I especially liked the performances of the children. The one that I liked the most was the one of the little girl. The young girl gave an amazing performance, and it was a pleasure to see her in such a great film.

this movie is not for everyone, I can see why. but it is a great movie. I'm not sure if this movie is a "real" movie, but it is a good movie. The best part of this movie is the relationship between the two main characters. The two main characters have no feelings for each other. They just want to survive. But, their feelings are genuine. The way they talk to each other is just brilliant. You can see they have feelings for each other. And you can see that they don't want to be alone. And that is very interesting. I think this is a very good movie.

This film is a drama about the family of a man who commits suicide after being accused of cheating his wife. The father, a successful architect, is not able to cope with his feelings. The mother, a woman who is afraid of her son, tries to break the ties between them. The father, in a scene which is not in the film, has a speech in which he says that he loves his son. This is a film that, on the surface, may seem to be about the family, but it is really about the man and the society in which he lives. The film is interesting and very good. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in the psychological problems of families.

Cute, clever, and fun. It has everything you can expect from a film made by independent film makers. The actors are great, the direction is great, and the writing is great. The film is really something special. I don't think I've ever seen a film like this before. I think the film really stands out, as it is so different from any other film I've seen. I think it's a great film to watch, and I think it will be in my DVD collection. It's funny, heartwarming, and sweet. The writing is great, the characters are great, and the story is great. It's a film that I will always remember, and I think everyone should see it. It's a great film that deserves a great recommendation. 9/10

This is an excellent movie. The story is very interesting. It's well-written. The acting is good. The music is great. I recommend this movie to everyone. It is not very violent, but you may still see some blood. I think that this is a must see. I would give it a 9 out of 10.
