This dark Finnish noir about troubled adolescence is reminiscent of Coppola’s Rumblefish.
Dir Pirjo Honkasalo
With Johannes Brotherus, Jari Virman, Anneli Karppinen
Better known as a brilliant documentary filmmaker, Finland’s Pirjo Honkasalo is also a cinematographer and directs fiction. Her dazzling, moody noir Concrete Night starts with a 14-year-old boy in a nightscape. A train crashes. He’s underwater. What follows is a journey through the darkness, with shades of Tennessee Williams, or Coppola’s Rumblefish.
