"La Vie de Boheme"
Directed by Aki Kaurismaki
Kaurismaki succeeds in
creating a wonderfully ironic chamber drama about three rebel, eccentric artists--a poet,
a painter and a composer. They all live the "bohemian life" in which their
friendship and camaraderie are the most valued characteristics, even as each faces the
harsh everyday reality of the outer world. Kaurismaki creates a fabulously artificial
milieu in a film of gentle and unexpected humor and warmth. French with English subtitles.
