This clip is a rarely seen interview with much adored Finnish director Aki Kaurismaki, which aired in 1990 on a French TV show called "Cinema Cinemas."


It's definitely fun to see where the downplayed sense of humour in Kaurismaki's films comes from, and aspiring filmmakers out there could take a page from his production methods as he describes them here. (Wink, wink.)


Kaurismaki's most well known film is "The Man Without A Past," but "Lights in the Dusk" and "The Match Factory Girl" are two more I'd add to the playlist. (Fans of Fassbinder and Bresson might love Kaurismaki's style, too.)
