New Trailer for Finnish Film 'The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Mäki'

The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Mäki Trailer

“Could you box for the camera? Look cruel.” Mubi has premiered an official US trailer for the Finnish film The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Mäki, which critics have been raving about since it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last year. The film won the Grand Jury prize in Un Certain Regard, and went on to play at a bunch of other film festivals. Jarkko Lahti stars as Olli Mäki, and the film tells the true story of the famous Finnish boxer who fought American featherweight world champion Davey Moore for the 1962 title. This was shot entirely on 16mm black & white film, which looks great. The full cast includes Oona Airola as his love interest Raija, plus Eero Milonoff, Joanna Haartti, Pia Andersson, and the real Olli Mäki in a cameo role. I’ve heard nothing but superb things about this, and I can’t wait to see it myself. ›››
