    The ability Aki has of conveying emotion with such a style in only an hour is magnificent 2 years 1 month ago

    What a fascinating film. It's a predictably depressing subject, but there's such a unique way Kaurismäki portrays this story. It reminded me a lot of Bresson or Italian neo-realism, but it had a much more subdued style. Quite interesting. 6 years 6 months ago

    A gut wrenching film. The ending made such perfect, ironic sense! 1 year 5 months ago
