Comedy 19851h 21m

Calamari Union is an allegorical movie that tells the story of sixteen men all of whom are called Frank (inspired by Frank Armoton) apart from a single confrere, Pekka. Collectively the Franks and Pekka are unhappy with the perceived oppression they face in their district of Helsinki, Kallio, and decide to move to another, Eira, imagining it to be an unspoiled place where people can live lives of dignity. The journey is an ironic one given that both districts are not so far apart. In this spirit, their journey across the city takes on epic proportions with each of the travellers gradually falling by the wayside due to such travails as marriage, work, and death. In its entirety the film is a wry discussion of humanity within a system that regards humans as subservient components.Calamari Union featuring Sakari Kuosmanen and Pirkka-Pekka Petelius is not currently available to stream, rent, or buy but you can add it to your want to see list for updates. It's a comedy movie with a better than average IMDb audience rating of 7.0 (3,503 votes) and was well received by critics.
