The film

Synopsis

This droll tale of longing and awkward romance follows two misfits - a coffee addict and a vodka-soaked mechanic - as they hit the road in their Soviet-built Volga. Along the way they manage to pick up two women, the Estonian Tatjana and the buxom Russian Klavdia, despite sharing no common language and being completely clueless as to what to do with them next. Set to a thumping rock and roll soundtrack, this beautifully observed and comically understated gem is classic Kaurismäki.
