La Vie de Bohème
La Vie de Bohème is a 1992 film directed by Aki Kaurismäki. The screenplay for the film was loosely based on Henri Murger's influential novel Scènes de la Vie de Bohème which has spawned several on-screen adaptations as well as plays and operas, the most notable one being Giacomo Puccini's La bohème.
The film tells the story of three struggling artists, trying to make passable livings in Paris despite knock backs and tragedies.
The film was a critical success earning several awards.
Le Havre (2011) is a follow-up movie to La vie de Bohème having many of the same actors 19 years older.
