Shadows In Paradise

Kaurismäki regulars Matti Pellonpää and Katia Outinen star in this offbeat yet remarkably touching romantic comedy. Pellonpää plays Nikander, a rubbish collector and would-be entrepreneur who finds his plans for success dashed when his business associate commits suicide. Whilst searching for a job, he meets Ilona a down-on-her luck cashier in a local supermarket and, falteringly, a bond begins to develop between them.
