Audience Reviews for Rikos ja Rangaistus (Crime and Punishment)
A fantastic version of Crime & punishment, simplistic, stylish and full of intrigue. It's an excellent debut from Aki Kaurismäki but it's only a slight hint of the great work to come from the brilliant Finnish director. Think 'Finland's version of Jim Jarmusch' and your part way there, for my money, he's one of the very best directors of the last 30 years.More
