ARIEL (1988)
Taisto Kasurinen is a Finnish coal miner whose father has just committed suicide, a misery compounded when he is then framed for a crime he did not commit. In jail Taisto starts to dream about leaving the country and starting a new life, but after managing to escape from prison he swiftly discovers that the rest of his hopes may not be quite as easy to achieve as he had originally fancied. A delightfully quirky, shrewd and downbeat comedy drama from the man responsible for ‘Leningrad Cowboys'.
