Frozen City
Filmfest 2006

A feature film saluting Scorsese’s TAXI DRIVER. After wrapping the principal photography of his critically acclaimed and award-winning movie FROZEN LAND, director Aku Louhimies made the 90-minute feature FROZEN CITY, based on the fate of one of the principal characters in FRAGMENTS, the taxi driver Velimatti. Abandoned by his wife, the man who has lost his family is convicted of manslaughter – an act of violence which, hopelessly drunk at the time, he can not remember committing. The role of Velimatti is brilliantly played by Janne Virtanen. The storyline explores Velimatti’s tragedy in great and moving depth and makes the rawest and most painful themes of a human life very real.
