Official Trailer

Directed by Aki Kaurismaki, this is a soulful romance set in modern-day Helsinki. Fallen Leaves tells the story of two lonely people who meet by chance and try to find in each other the first, only, and ultimate love of their lives. Their path towards this honourable goal is clouded by the man’s alcoholism, lost phone numbers, not knowing each other’s names or addresses, and life’s general tendency to place obstacles in the way of those seeking happiness. 2023 Winner of many International Film Awards.
