CRIME AND PUNISHMENT

FILM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
RETURN
Part of A Novel Idea, this month on Curzon12. Made available in HD for the first time in the UK by Curzon, Finnish auteur Aki Kaurismäki's wonderfully assured debut updates Dostoevsky's great novel to 1980s Helsinki. 'Crime and Punishment' follows the descent into crime of Rahikainen, a slaughterhouse worker and former law student, who murders a businessman and then begins a tense game of cat and mouse with the police. The nocturnal concrete jungle serves as a backdrop for the struggle for intellectual supremacy between the police and the murderer. Rahikainen’s only weapon in this struggle is his total indifference to everything.
