Rent Ariel on DVD


1988 Rated NR 1hr 14m

Provoked by his father's shocking suicide, laconic coal miner Taisto (Turo Pajala) decides to leave his provincial, humdrum life behind and embark on an unpredictable journey of self-discovery. Regarded as one of internationally acclaimed director Aki Kaurismaki's finest films, this deliberately paced tale blends satire, film noir and experimentalism to create a wry commentary on the triviality of human existence.
