La Vie de Bohème

The adventures of three down-and-outs in Paris. Aki Kaurismäki adapts for the screen from the book on which the opera La Bohème is based.

"Matti Pellonpää is a primitive painter, Kari Väänänen a music composer and André Wilms the author of a play in 21 acts. They share their fortunes and setbacks in a sublime series of tragi-comic episodes that Kaurismäki packs with tributes to other famous movies, and feature guest stars including Jean-Pierre Léaud and film directors Samuel Fuller and Louis Malle." (David Stratton)

Nothing actualy "happens" in an Aki Kaurismaki film. But things emerge -- deadpan, funny things. You have to become accustomed to the movie's low blood pressure, its subtly satiric rhythms.
