A good movie

To be honest, I’m not really an expert on Aki Kaurismäki’s work but since this movie was very well received, I really wanted to check this movie. Eventually, I had a hard time to get into this movie. Still, even though I wasn't really blown by the whole thing, I thought it was pretty good.

Viimeinen elokuvapäiväkirja 2018 (402 movies items)

"19.1. (Yle Areena) Onhan se nyt niin, että Hannibal syö vain raakaa lihaa. Toinen täydellinen elokuva! Joskus vuonna 2002 viimeksi katsomani Mies Vailla Menneisyyttä on uskomattoman hyvin kasaan kursittu tarina inhimillisyydestä. Kaurismäen tyyli pääsee kokonaisuudessa todella hyvin esille, kun yleinen fiilis on, ympäripyöreästä sepustuksestani huolimatta, korkealla koko ajan. Huomasin myös oikeasti liikuttuneeni kohdassa, jossa rahaton M menee kahvilaan kysymään vettä ja tarjoi"
