English Subs – Fallen Leaves

Sorry, dit evenement is niet meer beschikbaar

In Fallen Leaves, two lonely souls meet on an ordinary night in Helsinki. Both long for the romantic ideal of single and eternal love.


Ansa and Holappa (Alma Pöysti and Jussi Vatanen) are both in search of the love of their lives, but it is not without a struggle. For instance, they do not know each other's names and addresses, phone numbers are lost and Holappa's life is clouded by alcoholism. Yet they find each other during this vulnerable time. Although life's general tendency to put obstacles in the way of those who strive for happiness certainly does not help the situation. Aki Kaurismäki's 20th feature in 40 years is set in a very personal version of Helsinki, a version intimately familiar to long-time admirers of the Finnish director's hilariously imposing, fervently humanist tragicomedies.

Ansa and Holappa spend their day in drab workplaces, in bars full of dumbfounded customers and in sparsely furnished houses where a radio is the epitome of modern technology. Despite the decades that have passed between Kaurismäki's latest film and his Proletariat Trilogy (1986-90), of which the director considers Fallen Leaves a belated extension, they all seem to be set in the same sad, strange world.
