Fuck Off 2 – Images from Finland is Jörn Donner’s sequel to his film Fuck Off! Images from Finland (1971) and an attempt to depict the enormous change that has taken place in the Republic of Finland during these 45 years.

The fundamental question is: in today’s Finland, is it worth living, dying, or fucking? In the centre of this subjective and egocentric story is the filmmaker himself.

Fuck Off 2 – Images of Finland is connected to its predecessor through music. Many of the songs from the first film have now received new arrangements and new performers, but the lyrics have remained unchanged: they are just as current today as they were in 1971.

The film received its international premiere at the 21st Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival, where Donner also received the festival’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
