Film Review: They Have Escaped


A haunting fairytale set against the grim and isolated Finnish countryside, They Have Escaped sees two troubled teens, 19-year-old army deserter Joni (Teppo Manner) and 17-year-old tearaway Raisa (Roosa Söderholm), flee from a halfway house and embark on a rambling cross-country journey of self-discovery. 

Playing at Cinema Paradiso this Monday as part of the Scandinavian Film Festival, They Have Escaped is one of the more striking films on offer during the festival. Click here to read my full review over at Hooked on Film.
