How are the changing relations between Russia and its neighbours to be understood? Compartment No 6 unpacks that question in microcosm by exploring the changing relationship between a young female Finnish student, who boards a train for the interminable journey from Moscow to Murmansk, and a boorish, drunken, shaven-headed Russian miner with whom she has to share her tiny sleeping compartment. Finnish Director, Juho Kuosmanen, his cinematographer who shot the film inside a real Russian train, and the “beautifully believable performances” (Kermode) of Finnish and Russian actors have all received outstanding international acclaim. The Guardian’s Mark Kermode wrote of Compartment No 6: “the film’s central theme of overcoming otherness and finding common ground across personal, cultural and geographical borders seems like a balm for the soul in these tumultuous times”.
