Oh no, Lasse falls (2023) is a fiction by Risto-Pekka Blom, selected in the “Competition Prix SAUVAGE CORTO” section of the 19th edition of the Paris European Film Festival, Europe by Europe.

Synopsis :

The Munich Olympic Games, 1972. Athletes and officials prepare for the 10,000 meter final. Lasse Virén warms up on the track. It is a great day not only for Virén but also for the entire nation. But one man alone cannot win… Behind the scenes, six other Finns will do everything to help Lasse achieve this feat.



“It’s as if someone who doesn’t understand our species is observing us, studying how humans function. Blom has a knack for delving into human existence in a psychological, humorous, and laconic manner.”
Minna Suoniemi a curator at the Mänttä Art Festival
