  1. Renton47's rating of the film The Man Without a Past

    It comes as no surprise that Aki considers people inherently decent. This simple tale might be his doctrine of human rights; a detailed account of the necessary conditions for a person to find their worth in his eyes. Work, shelter, human connection. From there they can convert others to greater meaning, like rock and roll.

  3. ppg198's rating of the film The Man Without a Past

    Elukova ? Varmasti. Un film de cinéma ? Assurément. A movie picture ? Certainly.

  5. Garcia Marcos's rating of the film The Man Without a Past

    Les histoires d'amour de Kaurismaki font rire et pleurer en silence. Ou pleurer de rire silencieusement. Ou peut-être rire en pleurant sans faire de bruit? Dans tous les cas c'est fou, touchant, pathétique, et surtout beau!

  6. KillyourDarlings's rating of the film The Man Without a Past

    Des personnages décalés mais crédibles, tous attachants, intéressants... Émouvant mais sans tomber dans le pathos. Quand à la narration, elle est tout en justesse ; rien n'est à rajouté, rien n'est en trop, tout se déroule très naturellement. Un coup de cœur, particulièrement pour la narration et l'écriture des personnages

  7. azoulay's rating of the film The Man Without a Past

    Chef d'oeuvre absolu de Kaurismati, à la croisée de Fellini et de Kurosawa dans un univers flamboyant ou chaque plan dans des décors absolument sublimes et avec des comédiens bouleversants nous transporte dans le monde de la misère, de la droiture et de la solidarité de ceux qui n'ont plus rien, plus de nom. Kaurismati sait les transcender pour nous les faire aimer. Prodigieux film

  10. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Man Without a Past

    You might think this is just a normal film. It's not normal! It's Kaurismaki! I find his films quite intriguing. They have an absurd humour and an unpredictability to them. I didn't get him the first time I saw one of his films. It's a bit like trying to understand a different sense of humour or a different language. If you watch them more than once, as I did with this film, you start to understand his rhythms.

  11. Kaj's rating of the film The Man Without a Past

    I wish the wonderful final act could have carried better that empty first hour. But it could not have.

  12. Bernardo Crastes's rating of the film The Man Without a Past

    It made me think of classic French movies. I liked the fact that he doesn't really try to go after his past, as if, in a way, he knew it was not worth it. A good tale of reinvention done in a quiet, subtle way. I don't know if it's a cultural thing, but the character interaction feels slightly unnatural.

  14. anadyomene's rating of the film The Man Without a Past

    J.A. Lujanen/M's post-amnesia life is one of my childhood naive dream: living with a very small amount of money, alone in a container house by the river/lake/sea, planting potatoes. One of my favorite scenes: "If you see me lying face down in the gutter, turn me on my back." and the romance, aaah this film is so beautiful and warm in its own way.

  18. Bambarambambam's rating of the film The Man Without a Past

    Aki Kaurismaki's films, like this one, just like a chicken soup to warm my soul. No need anything else but simplicity, love and Bill Murray-ism (?) acting method.

  19. Alvise Narduzzi's rating of the film The Man Without a Past

    La recitazione è insopportabilmente scarsa e piatta, tanto da farmi chiedere se sia volontariamente così scadente. Tutto il film è caratterizzato da un piattume indecente, dove ogni sentimento, sia soave che disturbante, è brutalmente ridotto allo zero. L'unica cosa salvabile è una regia di un certo gusto, che fa da salvagente ad un film deludente.Tralatro Kaurismaki mi è sempre stato decantato come un genio, bah.

  20. João Rocha's rating of the film The Man Without a Past

    Great humoristic plot. The "dangerous" dog made me laugh really really hard. Amazing soundtrack too

  21. Beatriz Ourique's rating of the film The Man Without a Past

  22. Dignan's rating of the film The Man Without a Past

    Terrible. Kaurismaki gains sentiment and loses authenticity.

  23. Halil Küçükyıldız's rating of the film The Man Without a Past

    A Simply and effective film. A wonderful film about past, now and future. Without a name and memory, trying to exist and keeping on to live. Very successful product.
