Fallen Leaves movie poster

Hailed as the best-reviewed film of the 2023 Cannes Film Festival - where it topped Screen International’s prestigious critics’ poll - the beguiling new comedic romance from celebrated auteur Aki Kaurismäki (Le Havre, Drifting Clouds, 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.

Cast: Alma Pöysti, Jussi Vatanen

Director: Aki Kaurismäki

★★★★ "unexpectedly uplifting drama from the Finnish master of melancholy" OBSERVER UK

★★★★ "It’s a slight but captivating film, played with deadpan wit by Poysti and Vatanen." TIMES UK

★★★★ "Drolly scripted, impeccably designed and photographed, and played to succinct perfection, this may only be a slender drama, but it's also a cherishable summation of what makes Aki Kaurismäki special." EMPIRE MAGAZINE

★★★★ "Finnish film-maker’s sweet-natured odd-couple romance fills you with a feelgood glow and laughs in the face of Putin’s threat to the country" GUARDIAN

★★★★ "a particularly fine, poetic romance from a modern master" DAILY TELEGRAPH UK

★★★★★ "Fallen Leaves runs for 82 perfect minutes, which in an era of overblown epics that numb your posterior, makes it a total joy." ARTS DESK
