Our take

The second feature from Finland’s Juho Kuosmanen (The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Maki), this seductive strangers-on-a-train tale is brimming with will-they-won’t-they energy. Winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes, Compartment No. 6 is a ravishingly textured ode to companionship and adventure.
