Fallen Leaves

Hailed as the best-reviewed film of the 2023 Cannes Film Festival - the beguiling comedic romance from celebrated auteur Aki Kaurismäki (Le Havre, The Other Side Of Hope) follows two lost souls who meet by chance in the Helsinki night and then try, in turbulent times, to find companionship. When Ansa (Alma Pöysti), an underpaid supermarket worker, and Holappa (Jussi Vatanen), a troubled metalworker, meet by chance at a karaoke bar, there’s an immediate spark. But life presents a variety of obstacles to get in the way. 

With his trademark deadpan humour, minimalist dialogue and retro aesthetic, Kaurismäki's latest delight showcases his unrivalled mastery for depicting down-on-their-luck characters in all their complexity, and finding humour and optimism in the unlikeliest of circumstances. In a time of economic disparity, war and uncertainty, FALLEN LEAVES is a valuable reminder of the importance of love and connection; once again Finland’s most-beloved director has delivered, in spades.
