‘Unexpectedly uplifting in its insights into human solitude and connection.’


It’s the early 1990s and a Finnish grad student in Moscow has planned a trip to a remote city in the Arctic circle to see some rock paintings. Awaiting her in her second-class train compartment is a traveller from hell, a heavy drinking Russian skinhead who is about the last person you’d want to be stuck with in close quarters on a long journey. Although at first the two strangers couldn’t seem to be more different, they form an unexpected bond, both coming to face the truth about their yearning for human connection.  

As with his exquisite debut, The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Maki, Juho Kuosmanen once again proves himself to be a brilliant director and an artist who is both an acute observer and profoundly compassionate. Compartment № 6 is a wryly observed and intimate character study that celebrates the beautiful loneliness that ties us together.
