The Woodcutter Story
(Metsurin Tarina)

  •   Mikko Myllylahti
  •   Finland, Netherlands, Denmark, Germany

Seemingly impervious to the perpetual darkness of winter, woodcutter Pepe radiates a cheery disposition to friends and family alike in the picturesque northern Finnish town where he lives. His resolve is tested, though, when a series of cataclysmic events begin to upend his life and throw his family into chaos. But even amid the turmoil, his optimism wins out. Anchored by a riotously deadpan lead performance and a wild cast of characters (including a child barber, a singing psychic, and a talking fish), the film is an absurd, hilarious fable that grows increasingly surreal minute by minute. Despite all the craziness swirling about in the Finnish winter, one must imagine Pepe happy.
