DVD's From My Collection: The Aki Kaurismaki Collection: Vol. 1: Shadows In Paradise (1986), Ariel( 1988), The Match Factory Girl (1990)

Finnish filmmaker Aki Kaurismaki's films are distinctively sad, deadpan comedies about the losers and outcasts of our capitalist society. Deceptively simple tales, with elements of silent melodrama (see The Match Factory Girl), they are totally distinctive and surprisingly heart warmimg. These three early films in this Artificial Eye boxset are no exception.
