The adventures of three down and outs in Paris, this French-language delight is an adaptation of the book on which the opera, La Boheme, is based.

Matti Pellonpää is a primitive painter, Kari Väänänen a music composer and André Wilms the author of a play in 21 acts. They share their fortunes and setbacks in a sublime series of tragi-comic episodes that Kaurismäki packs with tributes to other famous movies, and feature guest stars including Jean-Pierre Léaud and film directors Samuel Fuller and Louis Malle.

              – David Stratton, Retrospective Curator 


A fine, deceptively querulous comedy that mocks the conventions of art and romantic love while, at the same time, exalting them as the only means of salvation. – Vincent Canby, New York Times
