- Synopsis / Plot
- The second part of Aki Kaurismäki's "Finland" trilogy. 'The Man Without a Past' delivers a new edge to the story that stirred viewers all around the world in 'Drifting Clouds'. Without side-stepping bitter issues, one could paint an image of a small country in the North in a touching, amusing, and liberating way. At the beginning of this new film, a man has travelled to Helsinki in search of work, gets mugged, loses his memory, and has to start completely anew, from scratch. He discovers love, and is forced to discover values with which man will not be ashamed to live. A small story about people who still know how to be gentle, an enormous cinematic experience..
