Made available in HD for the first time in the UK by Curzon. This blackly comic minimalist masterpiece from Aki Kaurismäki stars Kati Outinen as Iiris, a shy and dowdy young woman stuck in a dead-end job on a match factory production line. She dreams of finding love at the local dancehall, but finds her attempts constantly foiled by her selfish parents and the callous behaviour of her would-be suitors. Finding herself pregnant after a one-night stand and abandoned by the father, Iiris finally decides the time has come to get even and she begins to plot her revenge . . . "Compulsively bleak Aki Kaurismäki, with the bonus of an excruciating scene in which the lead character introduces her nightclub pickup to her parents" - director Peter Strickland
