Compartment No. 6

Juho Kuosmanen won the top prize award during the Un Certain program in Cannes in 2016 with The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Mäki. Now he is back and this year he won the Grand Prix in Cannes (together with A Hero). In Compartment No. 6, he takes us on a meditative journey. It starts in Moscow in the 90s, in a smoky apartment with a smell of cognac. Here lives the Finnish student Laura, who is going to Murmansk the next day to look at petroglyphs. Laura gets on the train and befriends the rough Russian Vadim. In this train compartment, they get to know each other and create an unlikely friendship. This journey will change their perspective on life. Compartment No. 6 is a warm, bittersweet and atmospheric gem.
