Aki Kaurismäki / FI, 1999 / 78 min.

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.
