The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Mäki

12A
The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Mäki

The true story of Olli Mäki, the famous Finnish boxer who had a shot at the 1962 World Featherweight title.

Immensely talented and equally modest, Olli's small town life is transformed when he is swept into national stardom and suddenly regarded as a symbol of his country. The only problem is Olli has just fallen in love.

Inside of the ring, it's Finland vs. the USA, but outside, boxing and romance become unlikely adversaries vying for Olli's attention.

This charming feature debut from Juho Kuosmanen was awarded the Un Certain Regard Prize at the Cannes Film Festival.
