Kaurismaki to conclude “unemployment trilogy”

Good news for fans of Finnish director Aki Kaurismaki — especially if you happened to discover him through Drifting Clouds (1996) or The Man without a Past (2002; my review), the first two installments in his “unemployment trilogy”. Agence France-Presse reports that Kaurismaki will film Vartija (The Guard), about “a security guard searching for happiness in the concrete jungle of Helsinki,” in May and June of this year. I really enjoyed the Kaurismaki retrospective at the Pacific Cinematheque a couple years ago, so I am definitely looking forward to this.
