Ariel

Acclaimed as one of Kaurismäki’s most accomplished early films, Ariel follows the exploits of the laconic Taisto, a newly-unemployed Lapland miner who sets off in a Cadillac convertible for a fresh start in Helsinki. Joined in his odyssey by meter maid Irmeli and her young son, Taitso’s plans take a series of unexpected turns in this dryly comic and satirical melange of road movie and film noir.
