Narrative Feature | Finland/Germany | 2023 | Finnish | 81 minutes

Masterful Finnish filmmaker Aki Kaurismäki (LE HAVRE, THE OTHER SIDE OF HOPE) returns with a timeless and hopeful love story about two lonely souls who meet by chance and find a path to happiness. Their journey is filled with life's natural obstacles big and small, including alcoholism, lost phone numbers, and not knowing each other's names or addresses. Winner of the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, Kaurismäki's playful and idiosyncratic FALLEN LEAVES is a tender tragicomedy punctuated by deadpan humor and a heartwarming conclusion. A MUBI release. Finland's Academy Award® submission for Best International Feature.
