A good movie

7 years, 3 months ago at Aug 2 8:42
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. The point is that Kaurismaki has such a peculiar style and it is, at the same time, the appeal of this m... read more

The second part of Aki Kaurismäki's "Finland" trilogy, the film follows a man who arrives in Helsinki and gets beaten up so severely he develops amnesia.

"1.7. YLE Areena (rewatch) Olin antanut tälle ekan katselun jälkeen 6 pistettä. Käännän sen nyt ympäri, koska tunsin jotain maagista vetovoimaa tätä elokuvaa kohtaan. Tämähän oli aivan loistava."

"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"
