A weird, but astonishing and silently funny film
Whoever has seen any of Aki Kaurismäki’s films might agree that they are all but mainstream. Nevertheless, the story itself doesn’t have to be too complicated. In this case, a man completely loses his past in a shockingly violent way, and he rediscovers life again in an environment of bums who sleep in containers. The good thing I found about this movie was: No romanticism of misery, no enlightenment of the tortured hero, no sob-stuff love story, no superfluous, aloof intellectualism at all. At least not in an obtrusive or overly serious way. But in a way that it sometimes shocked me , sometimes made me laugh, sometimes grin. I was never bored. And as I made it to Finland for the first time in my life a few weeks after seeing this movie – I found everything to be amazingly authentic.
A remarkable film that definitely moves into my shrine of the best 50!
A man mugged and beaten by street thugs and declared dead at the hospital miraculously recovers but suffers from amnesia. Initially this film feels like a poorly acted drama, but it later becomes clear that this is a deadpan comedy. The actors move stiffly and deliver their lines robotically but it is apparently because those Finns have a quirky sense of humor. Among the oddball characters are a crooked cop who threatens people with his attack dog (it is actually mild) and a Salvation Army band that sings fluffy pop songs. As is often the case with subtitles in foreign films, the lyrics of the Finnish songs somehow rhyme in English also!
