Made available in HD for the first time in the UK by Curzon. This early work by the acclaimed director of 'Drifting Clouds' and 'Le Havre' is a bittersweet tale of revenge and its cost. One of Aki Kaurismäki's favourite actors Kati Outinen plays Iiris, a shy young woman stuck in a dead-end job on a match factory production line. She dreams of finding love at the local dancehall, but her attempts are constantly undermined 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 child's father, Iiris decides the time has come to get even. And so she begins to plot her revenge. With its limited palette and deadpan style, this is classic Kaurismäki film.
