, 2004, 115 min, color

This love story, inspired by the ancient Greek tale of Orpheus and Eurydice, takes place during a magical adventure in the Baltics. Tom is an American musician who is searching for inspiration, and before returning home he decides to tour the Baltics. A young Russian woman named Natasha flees from the man she was to marry, German businessman Karl. The protagonists paths cross in Kaliningrad, but although seemingly carefree at first, the couple finally have to take flight. Perhaps Tom and Natasha arent looking for love, which would complicate their lives but, like Orpheus and Eurydice, they cannot escape their fate. At a fair between Riga and St. Petersburg, they find that they love one another; this brings them happiness and new creative energy, but also pain. Yet they cant hide from the past forever, and Tom, in order to be with his beloved, has to set off for the ends of the earth, to Murmansk, to the underworld...

MIKA KAURISMAKI
Mika Kaurismaki is a Finnish director, born in 1955. He graduated from film school in Munich and his debut effort The Liar, starring his younger brother Aki, created a sensation. Mika and Aki and a group of friends founded Villealfa Filmproductions, which made many noteworthy low- or nobudget films. In the 1990s Mika Kaurismaki began working through his own company, Marianna Films, where his first independent projects were Zombie and Ghost Train. With Samuel Fuller and Jim Jarmusch he went to the jungle to shoot the feature-length docudrama Tigrero: A Film That Was Never Made, which took the 1994 FIPRESCI Prize at Berlin.
