Compartment No 6
"Finnish film-maker Juho Kuosmanen has crafted a tense, compelling drama which offers plenty of narrative twists and turns."
COMPARTMENT NO 6
(Hytti Nro 6) (FINLAND) 2022 Drama
Director : Juho Kuosmanen
Starring : Seidi Haarla
1 hr 47 min
A young Finnish woman escapes an enigmatic love affair in Moscow by boarding a train to the arctic port of Murmansk. Forced to share the long ride and a tiny sleeping car with a larger than life Russian miner, the unexpected encounter leads the occupants of Compartment No. 6 to face major truths about human connection.
Certainly it's anything but love at first sight for Laura and Ljoha, the two passengers who find themselves lumped together for most of this journey. Laura, played by Seidi Haarla, is a Finnish archeology student who's been studying in Moscow. She's about to travel to the Arctic port city of Murmansk to see some recently discovered prehistoric rock paintings. Laura had been planning to take this trip with her girlfriend, but their passionate affair seems to be on its last legs, and Laura has decided to go it alone. Once aboard the train, she finds herself stuck in a second-class compartment with Ljoha, a rowdy Russian miner played by Yuriy Borisov. Ljoha's crude, drunken outbursts suggest that they're both in for a very bumpy ride.
