La Vie de Bohème (Bohemian Life) Reviews
(edit - just rewatched this and it's magnificent - glorious cinematography, brilliant performances, funny and moving. Pff... some critics eh)
Even if that was not enough, we are offered two sides of a tragedy: the one that comes from the ingratitude towards art when such profession is your profession, and the one that comes with the package called life. Whereas I agree that art in general is a greatly underappreciated profession, La Vie de Bohème suggests between lines that the true art in this life is the art of living and facing such aforementioned tragedies.
Very very good film. I loved it from the beginning. With plenty of humor and strong emotions. Watch it definitely.
Great shots. Acting with that distinct Kaurismaki style. Bizarre music and a pervading sense of hope despite all the gloominess.. perfect!
