For anyone who’s ever got drunk on bad schnapps with a stranger, for anyone who’s ever been properly alone in a nowhere-town and spoken to a dial tone just to look like they had something to do, for anyone who’s ever been asked how to say “I love you” in their language and has patiently sounded out the words for “Fuck you” … Juho Kuosmanen’s deeply delightful Cannes competition title Compartment No. 6 plays less like a film than an incredibly detailed, richly textured memory. And for all the people who’ve never done any of those things, now you have.

There’s a wonderful human warmth and humour in this offbeat romantic story of strangers on a train.
