Karvat is truly a triumph of art-trash-avantgardefilms. Not just only in Finland, but in The Whole Wide World! It has it all: unemployment, murder, robbery, rape, a gangster dwarf, false identities, helicopter rides, sleazy parties, sex, femme fatale and ordinary guy as superman. And a magic nut! And alternative ending. Etc. Etc.
It has same kind of trashy magic that Turkish oddball-movies had in the 70's.
Unfortunately Karvat is a black & white-movie. But you can't always get everything.
Braincandy for openminded filmviewers!
It is based on Lionel White's novel 'Obsession'.
