  1. Allison Rung's rating of the film The Match Factory Girl

    This reminds me of SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY MORNING (1960), except it is more poetic in its use of stillness and in its subtle imagery (matches). Iris's quiet strength also calls up the early heroines in Mike Leigh.

  2. Bécot Georges's rating of the film The Match Factory Girl

    Épure des dialogues et des images. L’histoire est évidemment très puissante. Épure du jeu des acteurs. Ils sont. Ils ne jouent pas. Magnifique.

  3. abcdetc's rating of the film The Match Factory Girl

    Une pépite qui confirme qu'Aki Kaurismäki est un grand et depuis longtemps. J'avais raté celui-ci, mais je n'ai rien perdu pour attendre. Merci

    Barbara Loden meets Bresson.

  6. Barrett.'s rating of the film The Match Factory Girl

    I'm not familiar with Kaurismäki's work but I do love how he seems to only use dialogue when necessary and would rather show not tell. Meanwhile making use of expressive diegetic music & knowing when to let the camera linger.

  12. alphonse's rating of the film The Match Factory Girl

    Aki Kaurismaki takes advantage of the idea of cinema as a purely visual language and crafts a short story that surprises in every corner with its profound, dark humanity and subtlety. The director's distinct, extremely vivid colours do shine throughout the entire film (instead of colourful, the effect is of something quite depressing and bleak) as the potential of every shot is used to the absolute fullest.

  13. anadyomene's rating of the film The Match Factory Girl

    This movie comforts me in a strange, bleak way, and I think I am in love with Kati Outinen.
