Compartment No. 6

(Hytti nro6)

Cannes Film Festival Gran-Prix winner and “one of the best films of the year” (Vulture), Compartment No. 6 is an unconventional love story that takes place as two strangers share a Russian train journey through the Arctic Circle.

A young Finnish woman escapes an enigmatic love affair in Moscow by boarding a train to the arctic port of Murmansk. Forced to share the long ride and a tiny sleeping car with a Russian miner, the unexpected encounter leads the occupants of Compartment no. 6 to face the truth about their own yearning for human connection.
