Man without a Past

Man without a Past, "Mies vailla menneisyyttä"

Synopsis

Director

That year Kati Outinen won the Best Actress Award in Cannes and Aki Kaurismäki won the Academy Award for the Best Foreign Language Film with his optimistic movie about the proletariat, where a man, who suffers from a memory loss, starts a new life among the homeless. The movie is a warm criticism of an EU country Finland, its consumer society and the world of banking.
