Markku Peltola stars as a middle-aged welder who suffers amnesia after a brutal beating in a Helsinki park and starts living on the outskirts of the city as he slowly puts his life back on track. Man Without a Past is classic Kaurismäki that brings out the Finn's unique blend of humanity and offbeat humour. And, with only a little imaginative leap required, makes for a wonderfully alternative Christmas flick sez we. Ho ho ho.
