Film description

Winner of last year's Cannes Grand Prix, Compartment No. 6 is set in the 90s, and follows Laura (Seidi Haarla), a Finnish Archaelogy student living with her partner in Moscow. When Laura makes a long rail journey up to Murmansk to view the local petroglyphs - mysterious rock drawings which are thousands of years old - she is forced to share a compartment with a drunk and misogynistic Vadim, on his way to a mining job in the same wintry destination.

Depsite the coldness of their introduction, there is a real human warmth that seeps into the film, which slowly becomes a heartfelt and charming trip into the northern wilderness.
