Hi Carlos and to answer your question relating the usage of tarr was the scent. MaybeI just put somewhere on the dio so that you can get the feeling of a warm summer morning, little dew on the ground and the smell of the trusted old boat on your way to check your fishing nets.
When Aki Kaurismäki made he film Hamlet going to business they had a very limited production budget. I knew the production secretary and they were scannning all their friends to find cheap extras in the backround - you qualified if you owned a suit. When I got there there were only three of us mens in suites so they had to use us in all pictures shot that day. Resulting a poor continuity on the scene because in every picture the same three guys were in the backround.
On Mika's film it was pretty much the same story. I studied photogaphy, had the equipment and knew how to hold a camera - voilà a paparazzi. Fun memories.
