Finnish movie Upswing present at the 14th European Union Film Festival Singapore

     “Upswing” directed by Johanna Vuoksenmaa is the Finnish movie to be honored the closing screening of the festival. The movie is a comedy, in which a young successful couple signs up for an extreme experience offered by an unusual travel agent. The “excursion” takes the couple across the city, and into a new world, living as unemployed in the infamous Jakomaki, the scrubby eastside suburb of Helsinki. The movie follows the couple struggle in a new, and a bit too real, environment.
