The Skies Become Less Friendly With Finnish Comedy THE HIJACK THAT WENT SOUTH
Aleksi Mäkelä's The Hijack That Went South (Kaappari) has released its first trailer online and with its period setting and sly sense of humor it reminds more than a little of the recent OSS 117 films. Check it below.The year is 1978. Aaro Lamminparras is a down-on-his-luck businessman, always patriotic and full of good intentions - but often cheated by his partners.
One drunken evening in Oulu he argues with his wife on the telephone and ends up spending the night with his friend, sergeant Lönnroth, an avid hunter and a gun collector. In the morning Lamminparras decides to fly to Helsinki to talk things over with his wife. In the plane he is surprised to find a handgun in his briefcase - and on a whim, he hijacks the plane, while visiting the cockpit.
This starts a hilarious chain of events - both inside the plane and outside. It is Easter and the whole country is more or less closed. The politicians are partying, the media is surprised, the police is taken by shock and the rumors are outrageous ... What happened? Was it all planned? Did the hijacker have inside help? Who knows?
