Nordic Film Nights travels to Finland this month, screening “The Grump” , bittersweet satire directed by Dome Karukoski (Heart of a Lion), who was named one of the “top ten directors to watch” by Variety.

The legendary Finnish actor Antti Litja plays the argumentative and fussy 80-year-old farmer who is fiercely opposed to modernisation. When he is forced to move in with his son and his wife in the city they instantly butt heads with hilarious consequences. But there’s more to the old man than the couple originally thought and likewise, he has a thing or two to learn from the younger generation.

“The Grump wins everyone over by discovering that perhaps the modern world isn’t so bad after all” Screen

“Irascible and lovable by turns” Hollywood Reporter.
