Euthanizer won Best Screenplay at the Tokyo International Film Festival at the end of 2017, and to say that it is a black comedy is perhaps an understatement. Very dark, disturbing and hilarious. An irreverent filmmaker who has to draw his inspiration from the endless Finnish nights, Teemu Nikki weaves a romance around the story of an emotionless mechanic who makes ends meet by putting down dogs. Among other things.
