The Aki Kaurismaki Collection - Vol. 3
  • Description

    Crime and Punishment:
    Kaurismaki's first feature follows the descent into crime of Rahikainen, a slaughterhouse worker and former law student, who murders a businessman and then begins a tense game of cat and mouse with the police. Effectively updating Dostoevsky's great novel to 1980s Helsinki, this remarkably assured debut offers a sharp critique of Finnish society.

    Calamari Union:
    A group of men, all bar one called Frank, abandon their downtrodden neighbourhood in search of Eira - a near mythical district across town that promises a better life. Kaurismaki's second feature details their misadventures along the way with deadpan humour and rock and roll attitude.

    Hamlet Goes Business:
    In this wicked and hilarious satire of the corporate world, Kaurismaki liberally updates Shakespeare's tragedy as a hard-boiled noir B-movie. Finnish comic Pirkka-Pekka Petelius plays an irresponsible playboy who finds himself involved in a vicious boardroom power struggle with his uncle, who plans to sell off his company's assets in order to corner the market on Swedish rubber ducks.

    La Vie de Boheme:
    Freely adapted from Henir Murger's 1851 novel, this is Kaurismaki's highly individual take on the story of three bohemian artists - a poet, a painter and a composer - set in a timeless Paris. Shifting between heartbreaking drama and black humour, the fine cast features cameos from Jean-Pierre Leaud, Sam Fuller and Louis Malle.
