Rocky VI (1986 film)

"Rocky VI" is a 1986 nine-minute black-and-white short parody of "Rocky IV" by Finnish director Aki Kaurismäki. The film stars Antti Juhani "Silu" Seppälä (Leningrad Cowboys) as Rocky and Sakari Kuosmanen as Igor, his Soviet opponent. In the film, the two boxers fight at Töölön kisahalli in Helsinki. The much bigger Igor quickly knocks out Rocky and wins the match.

"Rocky VI" is still shown at many film festivals. In 2004, the film was screened at Finále Plzeň in Czech Republic and at Xèntric at the Center of Contemporary Culture of Barcelona in Spain.

In the title, the letter VI does not actually represent number six, but an inverted IV, of "Rocky IV", the specific film parodied. The fifth film in the Rocky series, "Rocky V", was released almost four years after this parody, and the actual sixth Rocky film, "Rocky Balboa", would not be released until 2006.
