Critic Reviews for The Other Side of Hope (Toivon tuolla puolen)

All Critics (40) | Top Critics (5)

While Kaurismaki's deadpan sense of humor remains, his humanist side feels more prominent than ever before.

Kaurismäki ... remains committed to dinge, tunelessly drowsy twang-rock, and self-plagiarizing shaggy-dog plots.

September 8, 2017 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

A deeply humane film, as well as a quietly hilarious one.

May 22, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

This is a world that reeks of cigarette smoke and cheap vodka, yet as always in the work of Finland's maestro of droll melancholy, the perfume that lingers longest is empathy.

"The Other Side of Hope" wants to take you back to a time when quirkiness in cinema felt not cute but bold. Apart from the songs, though, it just feels cute now. If that.

The Other Side of Hope is a comically dark look at countries handling and views of Syrian Refugees.

Audience Reviews for The Other Side of Hope (Toivon tuolla puolen)

It has everything that anyone can expect from an Aki Kaurismäki film, including his hilarious deadpan humor and usual style with a theatrical mise-en-scène and palette of saturated colors - all of which he uses to make a caustic commentary on the racism of Finnish society.
