Quote

In the new dramedy FALLEN LEAVES, Finnish director Aki Kaurismäki takes the viewers into the world of two lonely people who meet accidentally and fall in love. It is a tale as old as time but in the hands of the acclaimed filmmaker, the story feels fresh and engaging. The cinematic world Kaurismäki creates feels both mundane and yet quirky, dark but with rays of light through the small moments when the heroes meet. The dialogue catches you off guard as delightfully absurd and you end up falling in love with these straightforward heroes which are flawed in a very human way. At first glance, you couldn't tell when FALLEN LEAVES was created due to a lack of modern gadgets and the style of filming but a few moments later, it snaps you back into today’s reality as soon as we hear, through the characters’ radio, bits of information about Russia’s war against Ukraine. This makes FALLEN LEAVES both a timeless tale and a reflection of this time. It draws strength from masterfully timed deadpan humor, minimalistic yet stunning cinematography, and well-executed acting.
