The deadpan wit of Finnish filmmaker Aki Kaurismäki s has made him a cult sensation. This three disc set presents some of his most acclaimed features. Drifting Clouds Among Kaurismäki s finest films, Drifting Clouds follows the dwindling fortunes of restaurant hostess Ilona and her tram driver husband Lauri, who find themselves unemployed at the same time. Embarking on an unforgiving search for work in a recession-hit Helsinki, Kaurismäki s comic masterpiece transforms the pair s plight into a hugely affecting story of hope and survival. Take Care of Your Scarf, Tatjana This droll tale of longing and awkward romance follows two misfits a coffee addict and a vodka-soaked mechanic as they hit the road in their Soviet-built Volga. Along the way they manage to pick up two women, the Estonian Tatjana (Kati Outinen) and the buxom Russian Klavdia, despite sharing no common language and being completely clueless as to what to do with them next. Set to a thumping rock and roll soundtrack, this beautifully observed and comically understated gem is classic Kaurismäki. Juha Kaurismäki brings his trademark wistfulness, irony and absurdist humour to the conventions of the silent film, utilising beautiful black and white photography, inter-titles and a lush, melodramatic score. Following the fortunes of Juha, an earnest farm worker whose wife is seduced away from him by a city slicker, the film is both a tribute to and a parody of the genre, delightfully peppered with references to Kaurismäki s cinematic heroes.

For me I would put Aki Kaurismäki's films as a would-be treasure as well.
Simple plot, deadpan humour, great shot compositions in color or bw...JUST WHAT FILMS SHOULD BE ABOUT
Even when he goes wrong he's more right than most films around.
A secret PLEASURE of cinema! Makes Jarmusch an apprentice of minimalism.
Here in Brasil, we cannot find a single film from his collection, even his brother's films (who lives here) is hard to find.
