Product Description

Having moved to Paris for university, Leevi returns to his native Finland for the summer to help his estranged father renovate the family lake house. Tareq, a recent asylum seeker from Syria, has been hired to help with the work, and when Leevi s father has to return to town on business, the two young men establish a connection in the heat of the Finnish summer.

A MOMENT IN THE REEDS is one of the first queer feature films made in Finland. Viewing the country from both the perspectives of an immigrant and an emigrant, the film casts the long-marginalised voices of sexual and ethnic minorities centre-stage in a story about the search for freedom, acceptance and a place to call home.

"An engaging and steamy drama" - Indiewire

"A spare, intense gay romance...an admirable quiet intensity" - Variety

"One of the most moving gay romance stories of recent years" - Film Inquiry

"A remarkable achievement...one of the year’s best LGBT discoveries." - Gay Essential

Nominated for a
British Independent Film Award and two Finnish Academy Awards (Best Actor & Best Supporting Actor).
