Juho Kuosmanen, Finland/ Sweden/ Germany 2016.
Extraits du film (Cannes 2016)
Read interview with Juho Kuosmanen, director.
I knew about Olli Maki because I am from the same town he is [Kokkola]. Then I went to see a theatre play that was about him….but that wasn’t really about Olli Maki. I started to think about what kind of story would I tell about Olli Maki. Maybe there was a different angle. I had some ideas that I was developing for my first feature but this story stayed in my mind. I knew about the championship fight, and I learned about his engagement after doing some research. I got more interested.
