Movie Info

Aki Kaurismaki's Juha is the fourth adaptation of this love triangle involving a woman and two men. The original story took place in the 18th century and revolved around a former servant girl, Marja, who is married to plain, simple-minded and older Juha, but in love with Russian salesman and 'Casanova' Shemeikka. Kaurismaki's story is set in the late 1970's, shot silent and furnished with captions to disclose the dialogue. It is meant to be watched with live music, preferably with the score's

For true Kaurismakian austerity, the film to see is the singular Juha, which dispenses with dialogue altogether.

I can appreciate Kaurismäki's love for the silent medium, but I think it may truly be a lost art.

Audience Reviews for Juha

An affectionate homage to the silent era of film. It's a funny sort of cross between Broken Blossoms (which it's heavily influenced by) and Lilya-4-Ever, maybe not as good as either but a well conceived idea all the same. Filmed in Black and White and to good effect, not once does this film fail to deliver visually, it just doesn't necessarily feel like a Aki Kaurismäki film and I don't regarded it as one of his best, that said, it is the brilliant ( but silent) performances that really make this film.
