AFI European Union Film Showcase: The Grump (Mielensäpahoittaja)

THE GRUMP [MIELENSÄPAHOITTAJA]

Saturday, December 18, 2015 at 9:25pm 

After an ankle injury sidelines the titular 80-year-old misanthrope, he's forced to move in with his son and daughter-in-law, where a clash of generations ensues. With little patience for a post-1953 society, he detests the hustle and bustle of modern life in Helsinki, and is particularly ruffled by his daughter-in-law, a successful businesswoman and a grump in her own right. Still, the two must learn to co-exist while his son is off tending to 
the family farm. Based on the popular books by Tuomas Kyrö, the film peels away the surly layers of its characters to reveal a crowd-pleasing family comedy. Official Selection, 2014 Toronto, 2015 Seattle Film Festivals. 

DIR/SCR Dome Karukoski; SCR Pekko Pesonen, Tuomas Kyrö, from books by Kyrö, PROD Jukka Helle, Markus Selin. Finland, 2014, color, 104 min, DCP. In Finnish with English subtitles. NOT RATED
