Lights in the Dusk
A man, two women, a robbery and a dog provide the elements of this typically terse and appealing romance.
Kaurismäki cast new actors for this story of crime, punishment and devotion. Janne Hyytiäinen plays a lonely security guard who falls for a woman (Maria Järvenhelmi) he meets in a café, unaware that she is involved in the robbery of a jewellery story he’s supposed to be guarding. Only later does our mournful hero discover his true love (Maria Heiskanen), who sells sausages from a mobile van.
