The Match Factory Girl

Tulitikkutehtaan tyttö

Trailer
Directed by Aki Kaurismäki
Finland, Sweden, 1990
Comedy, Drama

Synopsis

Kati Outinen is memorably impenetrable as Iiris, whose grinding days as a cog in a factory wheel, and nights as a neglected daughter living with her parents, ultimately send her over the edge. The Match Factory Girl closes out the “Proletariat Trilogy” with a bang—and a whimper.
