Aki Kaurismaki - The Collection - The Leningrad Cowboys
  • Description

    Leningrad Cowboys Go America:
    This hilarious road movie follows the misadventures of the wort rock and roll band in the world, the Leningrad Cowboys. When a promoter in their native Siberia, stunned by the band's lack of talent, advises them to try their luck in America they head for New York. Having learned en-route on the plane and sporting shades, outside quiffs and outrageously long winkle-pickers, they are passed off as Americans. Jim Jarmusch, in a cameo role as a shifty car salesman, sells them an old Cadillac in which they head south with their frozen bass player and a coffin full of beer.

    Leningrad Cowboys Meet Moses:
    After years of fame and misfortune in Mexico, the members of struggling Siberian rock band Leningrad Cowboys decide to return to their native village. Under the guidance of their former manager Vladimir, who now calls himself Moses, they face a difficult journey over the ocean and across the European continent. But tormented by lack of money, fuel and beverages the band begin to murmur against Moses and doubt his motives. On top of this they are persecuted by a certain member of the American intelligence agency who is hunting for the lost nose of the Statue of Liberty.

    Total Balalaika Show:
    At Helsinki's Senate Square on June 12 1993, an audience of 70,000 witnessed a historic event: Leningrad Cowboys performed for the first time with the 100 singers, 40 musicians and 20 dancers of the Alexandrov Red Army Chorus and Dance Ensemble, on the biggest stage ever seen in Finland. A roaring success, the programme included rock classics from "Happy Together" and "Deliah" to "Gimme Al Your Lovin" and "Knocking On Heavens Door", as well as traditional hits from the Ensemble's own repertoire. Aki Kaurismaki's film of the event is an extraordinary, unforgettable encounter of the old and the new, and of East and West.
