At the end of The Man Without a Past, I felt a deep but indefinable contentment.

A powerful film made with minimal means, it's a story of poor people on the fringes of society, done without sentimentality or condescension but with wicked humor.

Wry, whimsical and sure of tone, dry in all of the right ways and without an ounce of condescension.

With its rusty railroads and dingy metal canisters where the downtrodden dwell, [this film] finds color, surprise, and joy in the simplicity of struggling Helsinki outcasts.

M's past... is almost an irrelevance, for Kaurismki's film is really concerned with the possibility of wiping the slate clean and replacing globalised, corporate living with the values of a utopian community of barter and free association.
