The Man Without A Past

Fins gesproken
Engels ondertiteld

Nominated for an Academy Award (2002 Best Foreign Language Film), this second installment of acclaimed Finnish director Aki Kaurismaki’s Finland trilogy is a comic drama that?s both totally unique and completely irresistible. When a laborer (Markku Peltola, Jade Warrior) arrives in Helsinki in search of a job, he gets severely beaten in a local park by a group of thugs instead. He miraculously survives, but amnesia prevents him from remembering anything, including his name. Soon, a Salvation Army worker (Kati Outinen, The Match Factory Girl) develops a shy interest in him, and a sweet, natural romance begins between the two. But just as the man?s life starts to make sense again, his past suddenly returns to haunt him.
