Leningrad Cowboys Meet Moses
Directed by Aki Kaurismäki • 1994 • Finland
Living in Mexico with a top-ten hit under their belts, the Leningrad Cowboys have fallen on hard times. When they head north to rejoin their manager (Kaurismäki mainstay Matti Pellonpää) for a gig in Coney Island, he has turned into a self-proclaimed prophet who wishes to lead them back to the promised land of Siberia. Like its predecessor, LENINGRAD COWBOYS GO AMERICA, LENINGRAD COWBOYS MEET MOSES is a road movie, the humorous hardships this time coming from the rocky terrain of the new Europe.
