Fuck Off 2 - Images from Finland

Fuck Off 2 - Images from Finland, "Perkele II - Kuvia Suomesta"

International Premiere

Synopsis

Director

In „Fuck Off 2“, Donner waxes sarcastic about the scourges in Finnish society by interviewing regular people. The film takes a theme of different living possibilities. Some people find happiness, others succumb to depression. Many still dream of a better life somewhere else. Donner himself undergoes cardiac surgery.
The film grows particularly bitter on the fact that while the state has become exceedingly wealthy, income equality has been undermined. Donner’s touch is that of a humanism empathising with asylum seekers and the youth and the poor in provinces becoming deserted. The film makes a modest plea for making at least small gestures towards improvement.
Songs that featured prominently in the first „Fuck Off!“ film have been retouched by Finnish artists Ilkka Alanko, Yona and M.A. Numminen. – Helsinki Film Festival
