Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.29.14] Finland drama



J.-P. Valkeapää's "contemporary road movie" They Have Escaped looks a little more complicated than the average road movie. This is no trip of self discovery but rather a trip of escaping reality.

Two teens meet at a center for problem youth. Boy falls in love with girl. Girl takes advantage and manages to run away with the nameless boy. The pair play at romance, have a drug induced party in the forest and eventually end up in trouble with the law. It all sounds rather run-of-the-mill but They Have Escaped looks anything but typical. I particularly love the nightmare-like peek at the drug sequence sandwiched between teen drama in this trailer.


They Have Escaped will have its North American premiere at TIFF.
