EUTHANIZER /Armomurhaaja

85 min | In Finnish with English subtitles

In this exploitation throwback, village loner Veijo runs a black-market operation euthanizing people's ailing pets to make extra money. It’s clear he has dark secrets, and despite the grisly nature of his work, has an affinity and sympathy for the animals that doesn’t translate to his interactions with other people. But Veijo’s carefully balanced life begins to show some cracks when he’s approached by a seedy mechanic with ties to a neo-Nazi gang, Petri, who wants him to put down a healthy but unwanted pit bull. At the same time Veijo also begins to develop an intimate but strange relationship with a local nurse. When Veijo fails to complete the job that he was paid to do, things turn to the extreme. (Directed by Teemu Nikki, 2017)


“A dark and often disturbing, boundary-pushing film … despite the incredibly violent and nihilistic milieu, Nikki still finds room to insert a little love.” —LA Times
