Aki Kaurismäki's actor Markku Peltola dies at 51

Finnish actor Markku Peltola, who won international recognition because of his role in director Aki Kaurismaki's 2002 movie The Man Without a Past, died early Monday at the age 51. Kaurismaki's film won the Grand Prix at the Cannes film festival in 2002. Peltola also had supporting parts in Kaurismaki's 1999 movie Juha and Drifting Clouds from 1996.

Coincidentally, Kamera last week published a review of a DVD package with some of Kaurismäki's films which you can read here.
