Ēriks Beķers’s review:
Any director who can craft a compelling story without using an immediate, central conflict is worth his salt in my book. Though Aki Kaurismaki does have something of a conflict at the base of THE MAN WITHOUT A PAST, he doesn't explore it until the very end, and even then it seems very secondary. All the while, Kaurismaki's idiosyncratic portrait of modern day Helsinki is charmingly funny and memorable.
