This movie stars three drag queens (well, two queens and a princess, smile) and teaches marvelous lessons about self-acceptance and empathy. Among the laughs, one learns that genuine acceptance comes from people and places where you least expect it.
Beautiful, strange, funny and moving Finnish film (with great music!) by Kaurismäki about how a man who lost his memory is being offered support and comfort and builds up a new life with other people on the outskirts of society.
