Film information

Story: Box set containing the three films in Finnish director Aki Kaurismaki's 'workers trilogy'. With low-key acting, minimal dialogue and humour so deadpan it almost doesn't qualify as humour at all, Kaurismaki tells simple, devastating stories of loss, love, compassion and the urge to escape. 'Shadows in Paradise' (1986) is Kaurismaki's first collaboration with Kati Outinen, the actress whose face has become emblematic of his cinema. Dustman Nikander (Matti Pellonpaa) strikes up a platonic relationship with Ilona (Outinen), a cashier in a Helsinki supermarket. In the existential classic 'Ariel' (1987), Taisto (Turo Pajala) drives his white Cadillac through snow-strewn Finland, looking for love. 'The Match Factory Girl' (1990) tells the tale of a modern-day Cinderella - the down-at-heel Iris (Outinen), who works on a factory assembly line.

Starring: Kati Outinen, Elina Salo, Turo Pajala, Esko Nikkari, Susanna Haavisto, Vesa Vierikko, Matti Pellonpaa, Eetu Hilkamo, Erkki Pajala, Matti Jaaranen, Hannu Viholainen, Jorma Markkula, Tarja Keinanen, Sakari Kuosmanen

Directed by: Aki Kaurismäki
