Ariel by Aki Kaurismäki( Visual )

Comedy and crime are combined in this story about Taisto Kasurinen, a Finnish miner who loses his job, is given a huge white cadillac and embarks on a cross-country trip. What begins as a relaxing drive becomes a crime spree as Taisto becomes involved in a mugging, a jailbreak, car theft and murder. Throughout his unpredictable misadventures, the deadpan hero searches for domestic happiness with his newly-found girlfriend and her son. Kaurismäki borrows from European black comedies, American road movies and 1930's gangster films to fictionalize his favorite theme: a wise person is one who can maintain his cool while the world disintegrates around him
