The plot synopsis for J.-P. Valkeapää’s contemporary road movie They Have Escaped reads like a clichéd story about teenage runaways, but the trailer suggests something deeper, surreal and far more disturbing. They Have Escaped is hopefully another fine work from a director who is quickly emerging as one of Finland’s brightest young talents. The trailer manages to maximize the impact of cinematographer Pietari Peltola’s visuals and the sound and heterogeneous music selection, also helps in peeking my interest.
