Markku Peltola

Have you met Markku Peltola? No?! Well, maybe you have but cannot remember. Which is probably his problem as well, at least according to the script - Peltola played the main character in Aki Kaurismäki's prize-winning film "The Man Without A Past". After having been beaten up and proclaimed D.O.A., a man simply named "M" gets up from his hospital bed and walks out into the world just like that. In the course of the film, "M" will discover his talent for welding, his love for a woman working in the salvation army, and an old jukebox, with the help of which he will exert an immense influence on the local music scene. Cool guy. (Rolf Jäger)
