Happier Times, Grump (Ilosia aikoja, Mielensäpahoittaja)

Part of the European Perspectives Strand


The Grump is back in this delightful sequel to the 2014 Finnish hit. Heikki Kinnunen dons the distinctive furry hat to play the always gloomy Grump. The Grump is busy making his own coffin in readiness for his death now that his wife has died, when his granddaughter Sofia (Satu Tuuli Karhu) walks away from her big-city life and into his rural cottage. Sofia’s need for the stubborn wisdom of the Grump helps the great Finnish dinosaur see life in a new light. [12A]

Supported by James and Morag Anderson
