The misadventures of a mineworker from Finland’s frozen north who heads south when the mine closes; Kaurismäki’s first film released in Australia (in 1991) is the epitome of ‘supercool’.

Turo Pajala is the tenacious protagonist who inherits a convertible, with a top that refuses to work, from his late co-worker and finds romance with a woman who hands out parking fines. During the course of a typically succinct, no-nonsense scenario the hapless hero is mugged, jailed, double-crossed and yet never loses sight of that faraway paradise ‘Over the Rainbow’. 

              – David Stratton, Retrospective Curator 

 

[Ariel] isn't the vision of a flashy stylist with fashionable new attitudes, but the vision of a man who has found a filmmaking rhythm that suits his own bruised sensibility. – Roger Ebert
