The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Mäki

The true story of Olli Mäki, the famous Finnish boxer who had a shot at the 1962 World Featherweight title. Immensely talented and equally modest, Olli&#39s small town life is transformed when he is swept into national stardom and suddenly regarded as a symbol of his country. There&#39s only one problem: Olli has just fallen in love. Inside of the ring, it&#39s Finland vs. the USA, but outside, boxing and romance become unlikely adversaries vying for Olli&#39s attention. This charming feature debut from Juho Kuosmanen was awarded the Un Certain Regard Prize at the Cannes Film Festival.
