COMPARTMENT Number 6 is the latest offering from Keighley Film Club.

The movie sees two strangers share a train journey that will change their perspectives on life.

"It explores what common bonds strangers from different cultures and economic backgrounds can identify," says Alan Watkinson, for the club.

"The film throws together two strangers in the cramped conditions of a Russian train journey from Moscow to Murmansk.

"Laura (Seidi Haarla) is a Finnish student travelling alone to view some pre-historic drawings in Siberia, whilst Ljoha (Yuriy Borisov) – an uncouth Russian miner – is the other mismatched traveller.

"The cramped conditions make their initial interaction rather brusk, but with time they do find common ground."

Reviewers have praised Seidi and Yuriy as "extraordinary actors" and paid tribute to handheld camera work that "cares for its characters without glamorising them".

The 2021 film, which is certified 15 and runs for one hour 47 minutes, is directed by Juho Kuosmanen and based on a novel by Rosa Liksom. It has English sub-titles.

It was winner of the Grand Prize at last year's Cannes Film Festival.

The Keighley Film Club screening is at the Picture House cinema, in North Street, on Sunday, July 17, 6pm.

Everyone is welcome.
