Lights in the Dusk

Laitakaupungin valot

Directed by Aki Kaurismäki
Finland, 2006
Crime, Drama, Thriller


Koistinen is a security man who becomes a victim of a femme fatale and of a gang. They leave him alone to face the consequences of his loyalty. A poignant reminder of the lot of the emotional ‘have-nots’ in our world that glows with genuine warmth and a small but enriching glimmer of hope.
