The latest film directed by Aki Kaurismäki, “Fallen Leaves,” a strong contender for the Best International Feature Film Oscar, is set to premiere in Romanian cinemas on December 1.
Ansa and Holappa, two solitary individuals, serendipitously cross paths one night on the streets of Helsinki, attempting to find their first, only, and perhaps last love of their lives. Their journey toward this grand goal is threatened by Holappa’s alcohol dependency, lost phone numbers, and the fact that they don’t know each other’s names or addresses. However, the greatest obstacle is the habit of fate to throw obstacles in the way of those seeking happiness.
Touching, tragic, and comedic at the same time, Aki Kaurismäki’s latest film won the Jury Prize at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival.
It was also named Best Film of the Year by the International Federation of Critics.
