The Grump /Mielensäpahoittaja
The Grump (Antti Litja) is a stubborn, sour-faced old farmer with a rose-tinted view of the past. After a bad fall, he is forced to move from his family farm to the city home of his career-focussed daughter-in-law. Struggling to exist in this new world, the old man seems to do nothing but clash with everyone around him. But slowly it becomes apparent that the old fellow could still teach the modern world a trick or two!
Based on the popular novel by Finnish author Tuomas Kyrö, The Grump is a charming and comedic culture-clash satire from up-and-coming director Dome Karukoski (Lapland Odyssey).
This comic romp boasts the sort of humor that can be appreciated by anyone who thinks the world is going to hell in a handbasket. – Variety
