Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 07/29/1993
"...A fine, deceptively querulous comedy that mocks the conventions of art and romantic love while, at the same time, exalting them..."
Film Comment - 05/01/1992
"...The director takes self-mockery ā la David Lynch and refines it into a subtle, teasing ambivalence..."
Los Angeles Times - 03/18/1994
"...A film that ends up celebrating both camaraderie and true love..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 02/25/1994
"...The films of Finnish director Aki Kaurismaki occupy a special place in the geography of the movies. Small in scope, and smaller in effect, they creep up on you slowly with their icy wit and harsh beauty..."

Product Description:

Three starving artists fantasize about success in this offbeat and witty look at bohemian life.

Plot Synopsis:

When Marcel Marx, a down and out French poet, gets evicted from his humble apartment, he wanders into the restaurant where Albanian painter Rodolfo is about to enjoy dinner. They dine together, after which Rodolfo invites his new homeless friend to share his lodgings. First, they return to Marcel's apartment to reclaim his personal things. There they discover that Schaumard, the new tenant, has simply taken Marcel's place, belongings and all. Rather than argue, all three -- and their lovers -- become close allies and confidants. Together, the French poet, the Irish composer and the Albanian painter do their best make it in Paris.
