Aki Kaurismäki, Finland 1990, 69 minutes HD PG

Painfully shy match factory worker Iiris (Kaurismäki regular Outinen) ekes out a bleak subsistence in Helsinki, where she is scorned by her ineffectual mother and stepfather and her clumsy attempts at social interaction are met with indifference. When a one-night stand leaves her pregnant and alone, Iris takes matters into her own hands – in spectacular fashion. With Kaurismäki’s characteristic deadpan, The Match Factory Girl walks a fine line between grim and grimly hilarious. - BAM Cinematek

It has the sure touch, inexorable flow and after-effect of a masterpiece. A weirdo masterpiece, to be sure: funky and minimalist, caustic and heartfelt, puckishly wry and despairingly dark. (It) is shot so simply and starkly, with such apparent affectlessness that it becomes hypnotic. Kaurismaki has been the darling of urban American and international film critics for several years… The Match Factory Girl is clearly the masterwork of his 10-year career. It catches our eyes, burns its images into our mind.
- Michael Wilmington, Los Angeles Times.
