Date of the opening: február 09, 2007

The setting is Paris, the capital of love and art. Despite all their differences our heroes – Rodolfo, the Albanian painter, Marcel, the leftist writer and Schaunard, the womanizer composer – are tied to each other by a tender and self-less friendship. Kaurismäki shows the characters of the XIXth century novel in contemporary situations, with a dry sense of humor, freeing them from a melodramatic air.

Opening date: February 9, 2007.
Running time: 1 hour and 35 minutes.
