Kaurismäki filmed this fateful drama as a silent black and white film that unfolds from a simple melodramatic tale into an expressive drama. Add Kaurismäki’s outspoken sense of the darkly humorous aspects of the human condition and the result is best described as ‘a Finnish variation on Twin Peaks’, as a British critic put it.
The Essential Aki Kaurismäki programme celebrates Finland’s first centenary as an independent country. The Finnish republic was proclaimed on 6 December 1917, not long after the October Revolution in Russia.
