Most of the characters face a daily question: to be kind or unkind. Kaurismaki builds a heroic narrative around that idea.

It's refreshing to see a film about the refugee crisis that doesn't rely on cliche, but the fact remains: The mundane is mundane.

The director's seamless politics and rock 'n' roll style have been evolved in the past decade, and The Other Side of Hope feels like a crystallization of sorts. It finds the perfect harmony between off-kilter strangeness and essential acts of humanity.

Finnish films have been generating buzz lately. "Tom of Finland" and "The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Maki" have found a small, if enthusiastic, audience...Aki Kaurismäki's charmingly deadpan "The Other Side of Hope" should follow a similar path.

If you're a fan of Kaurismäki, you're already there. If you're a newbie and curious, this is a perfect opportunity to dip your toe in, as it's representative of his finest work.

The guiding ethic of The Other Side of Hope is as much topical as it universal: that altruism is not especially brave or courageous, but just the basic principle governing relations between human beings.
