Director: Aki KaurismÃ¤ki
Rocky VI is a serious-minded declaration on cultural policy, a collision of Finnish patriotism, multinational mass entertainment and apolitical straightforwardness respectful to Eastern neighbours. Also, Rocky VI is a story about boxing, about dreams and about the healing power of music. The basic question the film asserts is one of the most essential in our times: can an American born in the toilet of McDonald's beat a giant who grew in the steppes of Siberia, in the shadow of sauerkraut? For all this, this age is more to blame than Rocky VI.
