The Grump (Mielensäpahoittaja)
Director: Dome Karukoski
FILM INFO: 104 minutes, Finland/Iceland, 2014,
If you liked ‘The 100-Year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window’, you’ll enjoy this tale of another elderly rascal.
After a bad fall, a stubborn old farmer moves in with his career-focussed daughter-in-law, where he’s confronted with the modern world. This bittersweet culture-clash satire from director Dome Karukoski (Lapland Odyssey) was the biggest homegrown Finnishbox-office hit last year.
