New Finnish Cinema. A breath of fresh air with a tint of a sense of humour far from being trivial, mixed with a bit of sadness and grotesque: these are the ingredients that define Finnish Cinema and make it unique. This is a fitting description for both old classics and latest productions that come from Finland. More »

Away We Go

Para na życie · dir. Sam Mendes
USA, Great Britain 2009, 98’


06/26, 22:30 · Open Space


Up till now, Burt and Verona — both of them in their thirties — have been living carefree lives, ignoring the lack of stabilisation and a flat with a cardboard window. However, the moment of disillusion comes, when it turns out they will have a baby. The return to reality is even more drastic, as the future grandparents intend to keep their distance of thousands of kilometres. Burt and Verona are left to their own resources and decide to set off for a crazy journey through America, trying to find their own place and way of life.

Away We Go is an intelligent and disarmingly optimistic comedy about love, trying to send a message that life together does not have to be banal — even if the starting point is a slip-up.
