A Finnish student studying in Moscow, Laura sets off alone on a train trip to the Arctic port of Murmansk, after a trip planned with her lover falls through. Forced to share the long ride and a tiny sleeping car with a larger-than-life Russian miner, Ljoha, she tries in vain to find distance. But as their connection grows stronger while the train nears its destination, their unexpected encounter leads the occupants of Compartment No. 6 to face major truths about human connection. Based on the novel by Rosa Liksom, Compartment No. 6 has been hailed as “fresh, resonant and honest” (Los Angeles Times) and “a trip well worth taking”—Globe and Mail. (107 min. In Finnish and Russian with English subtitles)
