A Moment in the Reeds

  • The Plaza Theatre 1133 Kensington Road Northwest Calgary, AB, T2N 3P3 Canada (map)

2017 | UK & Finland | 115 mins I 14A

Directed by Mikko Makela

Having moved to Paris for university, Leevi returns to his native Finland for the summer to help his estranged father renovate the family lake house so it can be sold. Tareq, a recent asylum seeker from Syria, has been hired to help with the work, and when Leevi's father has to return to town on business, the two young men establish a connection and spend a few days discovering one another during the Finnish midsummer.

“A Moment in the Reeds is a wonderful romance that deserves to be discovered. From a subtle beginning, the story develops into something more meaningful – and proves to be one of the year’s best LGBT discoveries.” - Alistair Ryder
