| Odd, black comedy from Kaursmaki -par for the course, then.
"Zombie and the Ghost train" starts off as a comedy, but as usual for the older Kaursmaki's sensibilities, it takes on a darker aspect pretty quickly. Annti purposefully gets himself thrown out of the army, then starts wandering around aimlessly, searching for something. Wonderful stuff, though there's not too much happening; there's the inevitable terseness of conversation and heavy drinking. Funny and sad in equal measures, it's a study in fatalistic decline and powerlessness and the ending is rather heartbreaking.
