Run Time: 100 minutes
Joni has a bit of a stutter. It’s one of the reasons he’s generally tight-lipped, letting the outside world deduce his thoughts from the pleadings of his eyes. But there’s also a more elusive reason. After going AWOL from the Finnish army, Joni is given one last chance to escape prison: he’s to become an informant in a low-level juvenile detention camp. There he meets another exile by the name of Raisa, a rebellious sparkplug of a girl who can’t seem to follow the rules. Together they take a chance and go on the lam, tearing through the Finnish countryside and escaping reality in the process. But somewhere during the course of their deranged journey things take a darker, hallucinatory turn for the worse. THEY HAVE ESCAPED begins as a conventional prison break tale, only to end as a twisted Brothers Grimm-like parable that will challenge your senses nearly as much as your mind. (In Finnish with subtitles) – C.P.
Note: Some scenes contain graphic animal imagery.
