FILM: The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Mäki

This upbeat, warmly observed tale concerns the true story of the famous Finnish boxer who had a shot at the 1962 world featherweight title. Talented and modest, Olli’s small town life is transformed when he is swept to national stardom and suddenly regarded as a symbol of his country; he struggles to cope with the hype, and would rather spend time with his new love, Raija. With its luxuriant black and white cinematography, this touching film has straightforward purity and generosity of spirit at its heart.

Director: Juho Kuosmanen, Finland 2016, 92 minutes, Cert 12A
