Dir. Aki Kaurismäki (1988). A laid-off Lapland miner drives to Helsinki in his white Cadillac convertible, teams up with a hard cookie and falls into a life of crime. Although not without sentimentality, Kaurismakis deadpan visual humor, ballad-like compression, and ravishingly shot derelict landscapes give the film a lyricism as touching as it is bleak.
