The Man Without a Past ★★★★★

Top 250 Directors Challenge - 20/250 (#211 - Aki Kaurismäki)

Just a great, simple premise handled perfectly. It doesn't aim for any kind of self-serious philosophical importance, instead opting for deadpan humor and trepidatious longing. The characters in Aki Kaurismäki movies are like these strange creatures of pure stoicism and their Scandinavian-ness speaks to me on a primal level.
