The ability Aki has of conveying emotion with such a style in only an hour is magnificent
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.
it is the third movie in Kaurismäki's Proletariat trilogy, the other two movies being Shadows in Paradise (1986) and Ariel (1988)
