RETURN
Part of Criminal Minds - this month on Curzon12. Made available in HD for the first time in the UK by Curzon. Concluding cult filmmaker Aki Kaurismäki's 'loser trilogy' that began with 'Drifting Clouds' and 'The Man Without a Past', 'Lights in the Dusk' is a blackly comic cautionary tale of loneliness and exploitation that was nominated for the Palme d'Or. Janne Hyytiäinen plays Hoisteinen, a shy and awkward night watchman shunned by his colleagues and whose well-meaning actions are foiled at every turn. His luck seems to change when he meets the glamorous blonde Mirja (Maria Järvelhelmi), but too late finds himself helplessly embroiled in a world of criminal deceit and lies. Beautifully shot, with droll performances and an eclectic soundtrack, Kaurismäki's film combines shades of film noir with his trademark bone-dry humour creating a typically distinctive deadpan masterpiece. ★★★★ "Brilliantly efficient storytelling" - Jonathan Trout, BBC
