Event Description

Grand Prix, Cannes 2021

Great train films like Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train, Tony Scott’s Unstoppable, Wes Anderson’s The Darjeeling Limited, and Bong Joon Ho’s SnowPiercer seem to be a rarity these days. Now, put those out of your mind because Compartment #6 is an entirely different journey and you will be disappointed if you were hoping for people leaping from trains or mysterious disappearances solved.

Until her girlfriend dumps her and she ends up quartered with a boozy Russian miner, Laura, a Finnish archaeologist, is excited to be taking a train journey from Moscow to see petroglyphs in the far north. It can be difficult to make a film that’s set on a train – the close quarters can feel constrained but, in this case, it provides a perfect setting for a serio-comic look at a secretive romance between Laura and Ljoha played by Seidi Haarla and Yuriy Borisov who perfectly embody the inherent normality of their characters.

You may know of the director, Juho Kuosmanen’, from his acclaimed The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Maki. Here for his second outing, he has a steady hand on the helm as he explores the nuances of an odd pairing that should not work but does. – Kathy Kay
