Details
The Grump’s everyday life in the deepest of Finland rolls forward according to old routines. He’s busy working on his farm, but memories of his big brother Tarmo are bothering him. Tarmo moved to Germany decades ago, and the brothers haven’t been in touch, even though they were best friends when they were children. One day the Grump crashes his beloved Escort, and the car is taken to the junkyard. But the Grump is particular when it comes to cars; any old car won’t do. The nearest 1972 Escort is found in Germany. The Grump withdraws a suitcase full of money at the local bank and heads to Germany. The hardships start already on the Reeperbahn. The Grump is robbed and wakes up in a hospital with his brother Tarmo by his bed. The brothers, who later prove to be the total opposites of one another, go look for an Escort together and end up getting to know each other again in the process. Little by little, after a number of disagreements, the brothers start to understand each other better. They both have experienced losses in life, and now they don’t want to lose each other again. How far are they ready to go to achieve the thing that makes life worth living?

Director's Statement

I like tragicomedies where something that you look at closely may seem very sad, and when you look from farther away, it can be very funny
