Anna Katriina "Kati" Outinen (born August 17, 1961) is a Finnish actress who has often played leading female roles in Aki Kaurismäki's films.

Outinen was born in Helsinki. Having studied under Jouko Turkka during her "reign" of drama studies in Finland, she nevertheless has never been associated with the "turkkalaisuus" school of acting methodology. Her breakthrough role was as a tough girl in the generational classic youth film Täältä tullaan elämä (1980) by Tapio Suominen.

In 1984, she appeared in Aikalainen.

Besides a strong domestic reputation gained through a widely varied list of roles in theater and television drama, film director Aki Kaurismäki's films have brought Outinen international attention and even adulation, particularly in Germany and France. Her first work together with Kaurismäki was Shadows in Paradise in 1986. At the 2002 Cannes Film Festival, Outinen won the award for Best Actress for the Kaurismäki film The Man Without a Past.

Outinen worked as a Professor in Acting at the Theatre Academy Helsinki years 2002-2013.

Biography

Kati Outinen étudie l'art dramatique à l'École supérieure d'art dramatique d'Helsinki auprès du metteur en scène Jouko Turkka , à l'époque où celui-ci fait autorité en Finlande. Elle n'a pourtant pas appliqué les techniques de jeu spécifiques de l'« école Turkka ». Elle se fait connaître en 1980 dans un film finlandais classique, Täältä tullaan, elämä! de Tapio Suominen .

Au-delà de sa notoriété nationale justifiée par une riche carrière au théâtre et à la télévision, elle atteint une renommée internationale grâce aux films de son compatriote Aki Kaurismäki.

Au festival de Cannes 2002, elle remporte le prix d'interprétation féminine pour son rôle dans le film de Kaurismäki L'Homme sans passé.

Début des années 1960. Copains depuis l'âge de 7 ans, Niila et Matti vivent à Pajala, bourgade paumée du nord de la Suède. Il ne s'y passe jamais rien, sauf quelques tensions entre Suédois et Finlandais de souche, la majorité d'entre eux parlant un étrange volapük. Ici, les "vrais hommes" lèvent bien le coude, chassent l'élan et font beaucoup d'enfants qu'ils n'hésitent pas à battre pour leur apprendre le respect de Dieu. Tout change le jour où Niila échange la bible de sa grand-mère contre un 45-tours des Beatles. Avec leur nouveau professeur de musique, lui et Matti décident de monter un groupe de rock... Une tragi-comédie exquise et très rythmée, qui joue sur une multitude de registres : on y trouve à la fois le côté chronique adolescente du Péril jeune de Cédric Klapisch, le psychédélisme d'Emir Kusturica, le laconisme d'Aki Kaurismaki et les doutes d'Ingmar Bergman. L'occasion aussi de revoir la sublime Kati Outinen, qui interprète la mère de Niila.

Valto (Mato Valtonen) lives with his mother, who runs a clothing business. Valto is seen sewing clothes for his mother at the beginning of the film. When he discovers the coffee has run out, and his mother refuses to make him new one right away, he locks his mother in a cupboard, steals her money and goes out. Valto finds Reino (Matti Pellonpää), who has been fixing Valto’s car. They then go on a road trip with no apparent destination. With music coming out of a in-car vinyl player of Valto’s car and Reino’s story about how he got into some legal trouble after he punched someone, the two seemingly enjoy the road trip. This is a typical Kaurismäki’s ordinary-scene-made-interesting moment.
