This blend of retro fairy tale and riotous farce sees a gay, Jewish, Parisian postman forced to flee Finland with a bag of cash, leaving his true love behind.
Chock full of misunderstandings and wacky characters, this very snappy, clever farce follows the mildly neurotic Ruben, who is working as a postie in Finland while living in bliss with his adorable blonde boyfriend Teemu. But when Ruben is handed a bag of cash in dangerous circumstances, he and Teemu argue, forcing Ruben to flee home to Paris. Things get quickly messy as Ruben rediscovers his quirky Jewish family and becomes enmeshed in a series of hilarious subplots. Original, quirky and stylish, this is a highly enjoyable film by first-time director Mikael Buch, who keeps the pace tight and the tone satirical and sharp.
