A young Finnish woman escapes an enigmatic love affair in Moscow by boarding a train to the arctic port of Murmansk. Forced to share the long ride and a tiny sleeping car with a Russian miner, the unexpected encounter leads the occupants of Compartment no. 6 to face the truth about their own yearning for human connection.
"Beautifully believable performances . . . rivaling the nuanced naturalistic charm of Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy in Richard Linklater’s Before trilogy... like a balm for the soul in these tumultuous times."
- THE GUARDIAN
"A love story… a total charmer, and will have you reaching for an Interrail ticket immediately afterwards."
"Unexpectedly uplifting in its insights into human solitude and connection."
- THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
