Lithuania / 2017 / 86 minutes / DCP / Color
Aki Kaurismäki’s deadpan tragicomedy finds a new root in director Vertelyte’s well-crafted feature debut, with more distinctively local elements and a dash of political critique in communist-turned-capitalist Lithuania. Irena, a tough woman with a bone-dry face and a hidden past, is stuck toiling for her alcoholic husband. When a boisterous American-Lithuanian stranger – a Donald Trump doppelgänger – suddenly arrives, pledging to save the declining enterprise and revive the somnambulant town, is it a miracle too good to be true?
