The Match Factory Girl

Tulitikkutehtaan tyttö

Regissert av Aki Kaurismäki
Finland, Sverige, 1990
Komedie, Drama


Kati Outinen is memorably impenetrable as Iiris, whose grinding days as a cog in a factory wheel, and nights as a neglected daughter living with her parents, ultimately send her over the edge. The Match Factory Girl closes out the “Proletariat Trilogy” with a bang—and a whimper.

Anmeldelser fra kritikere

The most acrid Kaurismaki I’ve seen, the only humour (apart from details like the pest in the bar, casually dispatched with a sweet smile) coming implicitly in the fact that this awful story is told with rich colours and occasional pop songs (incl. the doleful Finnish ballads so beloved of the director) – though of course the girl’s Victorian suffering is itself a kind of joke, hence the title’s echoes of “The Little Match Girl”.

I like The Match Factory Girl, even though, as Kaurismaki implies, it’s easily forgotten—unlike the epic action pictures of Bresson. Even at his worst, Bresson can’t be accused of making stylistic exercises; even at his best, as in this movie, Kaurismaki can’t be accused of making anything else.
