Mika Kaurismäki’s best films have  dealt with music or road trips. Road North com­bines both ele­ments with plenty of heart becom­ing a fam­ily story when Leo (Vesa-Matti Loiri), an absen­tee father, returns to Helsinki to recon­nect with his son Timo (Samuli Edel­mann) he aban­doned 30 years ear­lier, when the son was a tod­dler. The father con­vinces Timo to go for a day trip which turns into a jour­ney through the land­scapes of the coun­try. There is some­thing Leo wants to show his son, but he won’t say what. More fam­ily is also dis­cov­ered dur­ing the road trip. The over­all tone is lighter than usual for Kau­ris­mäki but still has sub­stance. Road North was a great suc­cess at the Toronto Film Fes­ti­val in 2012.
