Nº3 Aki KarusmäkiHelga Mjöll Oddsdóttir
Aki Karusmäki is one of Finland’s best-known film directors/screenwriters.
He is known for his extremely minimalistic style! The dialogue in his films is famously direct in a strict standard language, without showing much emotion or drama. The camera and the characters are usually still in every scene. These characters rarely smile, just recite their dialogue, nod sadly and smoke constantly. Events are shown in a plain manner and characters are left alone facing the consequences of unfortunate circumstances .
Hehehe a fun movie night coming up!
But really, his style is unique and his movies strangely funny.
He is most known for the award-winning films The Other Side of Hope, Le Havre, Lights in the Dusk, Drifting Clouds and The Man Without a Past. Give one a try when you are in a mood for a unique finnish cinema experience.
Above are pictures of some of his film work.
