Cinema - WOW - The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Maki BBFC 12A Rating


Dir: Juho Kuosmanen

Finland/Germany/Sweden 2016 1 h 32 min

Jarkko Lahti, Oona Airola, Eero Milonoff

With subtitles

This sweet romantic tale of a modest underdog preparing for his big fight conjures up a delightful mood of bittersweet melancholy. Although he has the expectations of the Finnish nation on his shoulders Olli Maki’s preparations for his shot at the world title seem surprisingly amateurish. Then Olli (“the Baker from Kokkola”) falls in love, and it becomes increasingly clear that boxing is no longer the most important thing in his world. With its warm, gently funny script, charming central performance, and gorgeous B/W period look this is sure to send you home with a smile on your face.
