"Leningrad Cowboys Go America"
Directed by Aki Kaurismaki
This sublimely absurd
road movie chronicles the world tour of the most mediocre polka band in Siberia. Nine
musicians, one venal manager and a very determined village idiot leave the tundra for the
United States in search of paying gigs. Watch for the cameo by Jim Jarmusch as a used-car
dealer. If nothing else you will remember the Cowboys' unique style of dress and grooming.
English and Finnish with English subtitles.
