ANOTHER DAY TO LIVE THROUGH

UK/Finland : 1h 22m : 2023 : Directed by Peter Simmons

10.00 : The Ballroom, Park Inn by Radisson Palace : Tickets £7.00

 

In a non-linear chronology, we follow Satu, an ex-pat Finn returning to her homeland to get back to nature after a terrible loss.  Here, in the wilderness, she encounters Lauri, a semi-retired military contractor and the two become trapped in a series of repeating scenarios, switching roles and identities in an isolated cabin with no apparent escape. As the climax approaches, the timelines coalesce and the truth comes into focus as time and identity take a backseat to circumstance and everything hinges on a handful of terrible choices.
