Matti Ijäs

Räpsy ja Dolly (Dolly and her lover)

Edition 1991
101' - 1990 - Crime, Comedy, Romance - Dialogue: Finnish
Director: Matti Ijäs Composer: Henrik Otto Donner With: Matti Pellonpää, Raija Paalanen, Kari Väänänen
They met in a seedy bar on a rainy night, and fell in love. Räpsy and Dolly, two lost souls, wanderers under a lonely star. Räpsy was a salesman... or so he told... and Dolly used to be a dancer who primarily lived on the glory of bygone days, and drank. This film is a tragicomic blues, a film about small-time criminals and daydreams. Räpsy, the hero, is the fickle soul of our time: what is the price of freedom ? How fast can a man turn his coat?
