IN CINEMAS & EXCLUSIVELY ON CURZON HOME CINEMA. The charming feature debut from Juho Kuosmanen was awarded the Un Certain Regard Prize at the Cannes Film Festival 2016. The true story of Olli Mäki, the Finnish boxer who had a shot at the 1962 World Featherweight title. Immensely talented and equally modest, Olli’s small town life is transformed when he is swept into national stardom and suddenly regarded as a symbol of his country. There’s only one problem: Olli has just fallen in love. Inside of the ring, it’s Finland vs. the USA, but outside, boxing and romance become unlikely adversaries vying for Olli’s attention. ★★★★ “A film of immense humanity and charm” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ★★★★ “One of the year’s most charming arthouse treats” – Trevor Johnston, Time Out ★★★★ "Wondrously evocative" - Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent ★★★★ "If Aki Kaurismäki remade Raging Bull, it would look like Juho Kuosmanen's 16mm monochrome debut" - Empire
