Trivia

Originally the idea for the primary location was Oslo, Norway, but eventually it was found out that Finland had more suitable pro boxing scene and as the director Kyzza Terrazas was inspired by films by Aki Kaurismäki, thus eventually Finland was chosen and the most of the story takes place in Turku, Finland.

User Reviews

 
A soffisticated psychological drama
30 March 2019 | by alexandrovnSee all my reviews

A great movie about the courage of retired mexican Boxer to fight his own demons and his feelings of guilt. A deja vu moment allows the main personage to take a difficult decision in his life. The movie ist not proposing any extraordinary action scenes, opposed to the expectations and to the title. It could be better described as a soffisticated psychological drama.
