In modern-day Helsinki, two lonely souls in search of love meet by chance in a local karaoke bar. However, their path to happiness is beset by numerous obstacles–from lost phone numbers to mistaken addresses, alcoholism, and even a stray dog. Told with his trademark style and deadpan humour, Aki Kaurismäki (Le Harve, The Match Factory Girl) makes a masterful return with this tender tale of star-crossed lovers. Winner of the Jury Prize at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival.
‘It’s romantic and sweet-natured, in a deadpan style that in no way undermines or ironises the emotions involved and with some sharp things to say about contemporary politics.’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
‘It’s a low-key treat with moments of real bliss.’
Dave Calhoun, Time Out

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
