Aki Kaurismäki’s
SHADOWS IN PARADISE

12:30   6:00

Wednesday, May 1

(1986) “Aki Kaurismäki's 1986 feature chronicles a romance between a dour garbage hauler and a surly supermarket clerk (Kaurismaki stalwarts Matti Pellonpaa and Kati Outinen). The “paradise” the reluctant lovers inhabit is a low-rent, boozy Helsinki, the ironic flip side of the socialist utopia, rendered with grace and loving familiarity. Kaurismaki brings his themes of the blue-collar blues and the redemptive power of love to a particularly poignant finale.” – Ted Shen, The Chicago Reader. 35mm print courtesy Finnish Film Foundation. Approx. 74 min.

Part of Aki Kaurismäki’s Proletariat Trilogy.
