(ANSA) – ROME, NOV 22 – Imagine two anti-glamor protagonists, anti-Ferragnez, then put them in a fetid and not very bright compartment of a train and also imagine that the woman is a homosexual intellectual who studies petroglyphs and, another, a crude and drunk miner who as soon as he sees her asks her if he ‘sells it’, imagine what.
This is the parterre of SCOMPARTIMENTO N.6 by Finnish director Juho Kuosmanen, in the running for the Oscars, formerly the Cannes Film Festival Grand Jury Prize and in theaters with Bim from 2 December.
Adapted from the novel by Rosa Liksom, winner of the Finland 2011 prize published in Italy by Iperborea in 2014, the compartment of the title is that of a Trans-Siberian train bound for Ulan Bator in the 1980s.
Here they meet the two strangers, Laura (Seidi Haarlem) homosexual Finnish student and Ljoha (Yuriy Borisov) Soviet miner.
The impact between the two in this compartment, which would reject any selfie and Instagram, is roughly like this. He bites into sausages and drinks vodka and is full of vulgarity, while she only thinks about how to find an alternative to not spend the night in that wagon run, among other things, by unpleasant Soviet personnel.
A train journey for these two full of stages with long breaks, where Laura and Ljoha will learn to know each other, to drink together and, finally, also to confide in each other. Ljoha, however, it must be said is one who moves well: he knows how to steal a car in an instant and bring, among a thousand obstacles, Laura to a place forbidden during the winter season where, however, her beloved petroglyphs are found (petroglyphs carved into the rock also ten thousand years ago).
