Finland Aki Kaurismäki Films on Blu-ray (Complete Collection)

Future Film in Finland will release all Aki Kaurismäki films on Blu-ray for the first time (some have been released through Criterion, I believe), excluding Le Havre that has been around for a while now. Also on DVD simultaneously, newly re-mastered Blu-rays with never-before-seen extras. They come in bundles and the first four are due this June. The titles will be:

June 5th
-I Hired a Contract Killer
-Drifting Clouds (Kauas pilvet karkaavat)

June 19th
The Man Without a Past (Mies vailla menneisyyttä)
-La vie de bohème (Boheemielämää)

Discshop claims that subtitles will be in English and Swedish (and of course in Finnish when needed). No confirmation yet, but the French spoken Le Havre had FIN, SWE, ENG and NOR and it was released by the same company.

Cover arts are simple, suits his filmography very well:

Fantastic news. Thank you for the info, Tepi.

I will be adding all four films to my library. Drifting Clouds is absolutely amazing, one of my favorite Kaurismaki films.

Hopefully, someone in Finland will eventually bring Teuvo Tulio's films to Blu-ray as well. The DVD box sets have films that look quite spectacular on DVD. This makes me believe that there must be some newish HD masters for them.

I wouldn't hold my hopes high on Teuvo Tulio titles. They have been released through Finnkino - a company that is not interested in Blu-ray (not even DVD so much) but running movie theaters.

For Kaurismäki, I think Leningrad Cowboys Go America should do well for US collectors. I'm sure we'll see that being released later this year as well, but Juha is something I'm really looking for (as we know, The Artist is definitely not the only b/w silent film of modern era).

Am I mistaken or have they released Ariel, The Match Factory Girl and something else in USA already?

The smaller films are out through Criterion's Eclipse series:



Ariel and The Match Factory Girl were in the first box set

Thanks for the info. I will still wait for the Finnish releases, because I can't play region A discs. Future Film is almost certainly releasing these in A, B, C.

Old thread, but now that Anttila has filed for bankruptcy I would recommend all the fans to look out for other online retailers. Very few deliver to US, but some do. Amazon.com has some of his movies. Happy hunting to all Kaurismäki fans out there!

Thanks for the info Tepi! I bought Ariel, Boheemielämää, I Hired a Contract Killer, Mies Vailla Menneisyttä and Kauas Pilvet Karkavaat a couple of weeks ago (from recordshopx.com). So far i have watched the first three (still waiting for the last two to arrive). Very pleased so far with the quality of the transfers and subtitles (swedish). It's a real joy to be able to revisit the ones i've seen and for the ones i haven't seen, i can hardly wait. Will probably pick up Varjoja Paratiisissa, Tulitikkutehtaan Tyttö, Tatjana, Hamlet and Calamari Union the next time around. November that is.

Thumbs up

Want to thank you guys for this thread and for recommending Record Shop X. Received I Hired A Contract Killer today, just over two weeks from when I ordered it. Looking forward to watching it and will likely buy more Kaurismäki titles from them in the future.

FYI: I can confirm this disc in particular is region A/B/C as stated on the packaging. I changed the settings on my region free player and it loaded up under each of those region settings.
