Synopsis

A student in Paris, Leevi returns to Finland to help his father renovate the family home. Tarek, a young Syrian asylum-seeker, has been hired to lend a hand. In the absence of the father, the two young men become close and begin a passionate, sultry relationship in the gentle Finnish summer... In this first film, the director chose to leave space for improvisation, allowing the actors great freedom and thus giving the film an amazing simplicity and a surprising vitality. “A Moment in the Reeds” takes up themes such as freedom, acceptance and the happiness in being somewhere in the world and, at the same time, simply feeling at home.
