Man Without a Past, The
Source: Catholic News Service
Droll Finnish tale in which a man (Markku Peltola) who was mugged stumbles out of a Helsinki hospital without any memory, money or ID to live among kindly poor folk where he meets a prim Salvation Army worker (Kati Outinen) but eventually discovers his unwanted identity. Writer-director Aki Kaurismaki observes his stoic characters with considerable deadpan wit and a gentle compassion that upends the cliche of a man-with-amnesia plot. Brief violence and an off-screen suicide. Subtitles. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
