After regaining consciousness, an amnesiac robbery victim sets ourt to reinvent his life, still hoping to discover who he really is. Finnish master Aki Kaurismaki’s dryly witty fables have always straddled the delicate border between outrageous comedy and dark despair, and this film – his most accessible and entertaining – elevates his storytelling art to an unprecedented and transcendent level. Moving, hilarious and altogether wondrous. “A comic beauty….utterly delightful.” - Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly.
