Cleveland Cultural Gardens Film Fest

The Match Factory Girl

Tulitikkutehtaan Tyttö
Finland, Sweden | 1990 | Aki Kaurismäki

The Match Factory Girl

The deadpan proletarian fables of Finland’s master filmmaker Aki Kaurismäki walk a fine line between tragedy and comedy. This is well seen in this droll but affecting blue collar masterpiece, about a shy, lonely factory worker (Kaurismäki’s muse Kati Outinen) who has a dull job, a pathetic home life, and a drab social life. Nevertheless, she prevails. “Just about perfect.” –David Denby.

68 min. 35mm. Subtitles. Preceded at showtime by Kaurismäki’s 6-min. music film Those Were the Days, starring his outlandish rock band, the Leningrad Cowboys.
