Tulitikkutehtaan tyttö (Kaurismäki)

The Match Factory + Those were the Days

Tulitikkutehtaan tyttö | Aki Kaurismäki

The tragic destiny of a downtrodden young worker in a match factory, ground down by the cruelties of an unpitying world, to the point of loathing and, ultimately, crime. A dark and pessimistic fable magnified by Kaurismäki’s tender and compassionate gaze, subverting to good effect the archetypes of the fairy tale. The screening will be preceded by a short film.
