"The Other Side of Hope follows the fortunes of Khaled, a young man who has travelled to Helsinki from his home in Syria to seek asylum. For first-time visitors, Finland's capital city can be a strange and confusing place. But help is out there for those who know where to find it. Aki Kaurismäki returns with another hilarious and poignant portrayal of society that extends far beyond Finnish borders with its beautiful insight and universal appeal."--from container.
