The film

Synopsis

Freely adapted from Henri Murger's 1851 novel, this is Aki Kaurismäki's highly individual take on the story of three bohemian artists - a poet, a painter and a composer - set in a timeless Paris. The film shifts beautifully between heartbreaking drama and black humour, and has a fine cast featuring cameos from Jean-Pierre Léaud, Sam Fuller and Louis Malle.
