A man, two women, a robbery and a dog provide the elements of this typically terse and appealing romance; a story of crime, punishment and devotion.

Kaurismäki cast new actors for this comedy-drama, the last instalment of his ‘Finland’ trilogy. Janne Hyytiäinen plays a lonely security guard who falls for a woman (Maria Järvenhelmi) he meets in a café, unaware that she is involved in the robbery of a jewellery story he’s supposed to be guarding. Only later does our mournful hero discover his true love (Maria Heiskanen), who sells sausages from a mobile van.

              – David Stratton, Retrospective Curator 

 

Brilliantly efficient storytelling… the sumptuous palette and the closed but beautifully composed frames evoke a strange nostalgia. – Jonathon Trout, BBC

The package of all ten films in the retrospective is now sold out but you can still buy individual tickets for each session.
