Movie synopsis: A number of serious existential questions are swirling in the head of Simo, a confused teenager. He gets the answers from his older brother, Ilkka, who is about to start a prison sentence. Ilkka is spending his last night of freedom with the younger brother, bestowing unwise advice on him. Apart from the heavy topic, the film surprises with its formal approach. The black-and-white picture plays with light and shadows, reflecting Simo's confusion in the windows of the concrete buildings. Pirjo Honkasalo¨s Finnish existential drama was based on Pirkko Saisio's novel and has won in six categories of Jussi Awards, including the Best Film award and Best Direction.
Awards and Nominations: Jussi Awards (2014) - Best Film, Best Direction, Best Cinematography, Best Sound Design, Best Editing, Best Art Direction
