 “Aki Kaurismäki returns to his native Finland for his latest feature, a bitterly funny and by turns melancholic look at the plight of Khaled, a Syrian refugee attempting to put down roots in Helsinki and track down his lost sister with the help of a former shirt salesman turned restauranteur, all while dodging the cold bureaucratic authorities that seek to deport him.”
