Aki Kaurismäki
FIN, DEU, FRA 2005
78 min

This is the final film in Kaurismäki's trilogy, which has dealt with issues such as unemployment in Drifting Clouds and homelessness in The Man Without a Past. In Lights in the Dusk, Koistinen, a solitary security guard, meets a femme fatale, Mirja. Unbeknownst to Koistinen, Mirja is everything but the quiet fair-haired beauty that she first appears to be; she is a con artist, who runs with the mob, and eventually uses Koistinen as the fall guy for a crime. In characteristic Kaurismäki style, the dialogue is punctuated with deadpan surreal humour. «Shall we get married?» And as in every Kaurismäki film, there is a glimmer of hope. (Katja Pantzar)
