Lights in the Dusk

Aki Kaurismaki; 2006, 78 min

Award-winning Finnish auteur Aki Kaurismaki rounds out his minimalist 'loser trilogy' -- including Drifting Clouds and The Man Without a Past -- with this 'radiantly beautiful' (Film Comment) noir melodrama about a lonely security guard (Janne Hyytiainen) in Helsinki who is dragged into the shady business of a Russian femme fatale (Maria Jarvenhelmi). Timo Salminen's evocative cinematography is fittingly oppressive. Nominated for the Golden Palm at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival.
