The Man Without a Past

The Man Without a Past ★★★★

“Like to tell me what happened to you?”
“If you tell me your name. I asked it once already, and in my present situation I’m afraid to talk to strangers.”
“It’s Irma.”
“Who would you call anyway?”
“My girlfriend.”
“I guess she has a name?”
“Not for you.”

As with people, there are movies that don’t fit conventional beauty standards but shine with such resplendence as to expose those standards for the bullshit they always were. Cheers to Aki and his tender, harshly-lit little tales.
