Aki in Sight & Sound, May 2012

Aki Kaurismäki is the cover subject in the May 2012 issue of Sight & Sound: "Since leaving his native Finland, director Aki Kaurismäki has broadened his canvas with Le Havre, but his deadpan vision remains the same. Michael Brooke talks to him, and surveys his career to date."

Hannah McGill's review on Le Havre is online: "In Aki Kaurismäki’s deadpan fairytale of working-class solidarity, quirky flirts with cutesy and bathos with true poignancy. Hannah McGill sees the raw humanity shining through."

There is another Finnish-international connection in Kim Newman's article titled "Moon Kampf": "Timo Vuorensola’s satirical sci-fi comedy Iron Sky takes Nazi scientific theory to its illogical conclusion."
