Aleš Najbrt presents

Aki Kaurismäki’s style is immediately apparent. An economical approach and an ability – ostensibly employing the simplest means possible – to capture the essence of people and of life’s principal values. A flair for evoking an atmosphere in which melancholy blends with gentle irony. And this unconventional road movie documents the filmmaker’s penchant for his own perennial heroes and stories – diffident outsiders and their rarely fulfilled desire for happiness.


Synopsis

Aleš Najbrt presents

“A grand ride in a black Volga filled with coffee, vodka, cigarettes, and rock ’n’ roll. Aki Kaurismäki demonstrates how thin the border between East and West really is. If any of you out there haven’t yet seen this gentle Finnish road movie, don’t miss it!”
