I admit I was a bit doubtful on whether Mika Kaurismaki could do a great movie that was most definitely not placed in Finland. Well, he could. As in his other movies, this is a quiet, calm and reflecting movie. I guess you could compare the particular style of this movie to Tarkovskij or Aki Kaurismaki. There does not seem to be much dramatic happening on the surface, but still all the main characters are going through major changes. There's this confidence in the cinematography and dialogs that made this a great movie for me. Sure, none of the characters seem to be born with much to say, but when they say something it hits every time.
