In the late eighties and early nineties, Aki Kaurismki (The Match Factory Girl), the master of the deadpan, fashioned a waggish fish-out-of-water tale about a U.S. tour by the worst rock-and-roll band in the world. Leningrad Cowboys Go Americas posseof fur-coated, outrageously pompadoured hipsters struck such a chord with international audiences that the fictional band became a genuine attraction, touring the world.

Aki Kaurismkis winningly aloof farce follows the men as they bravely make their way across the New World, carrying a coffin full of beer and sporting hairdos like unicorn horns. Leningrad Cowboys Go America was such a sensation that the band gained a real-life cult following. 1989 79 MINUTES COLOR STEREO 1.85:1 ASPECT RATIO. LENINGRAD COWBOYS MEET MOSES: Living in Mexico with a top-ten hit under their belts, the Leningrad Cowboys have fallen on hard times. When they move north to rejoin their manager (Kaurismki mainstay Matti Pellonp) for a gig in Coney Island, heseems to have turned into a delusional self-proclaimed prophet who wishes to lead them back to the promised land of Siberia. Like the first installment, Leningrad Cowboys Meet Moses is a road movie, but this time the humorous hardships come from the rock
