About the Film

Award-winning filmmaker Aki Kaurismäki (Le Havre, The Other Side of Hope) makes a masterful return with Fallen Leaves, a timeless, hopeful and ultimately satisfying love story about two lonely souls’ path to happiness – and the numerous hurdles they encounter along the way. Set in contemporary Helsinki, and shot through with Kaurismäki’s typically playful, idiosyncratic style and deadpan humor, this tender romantic tragicomedy is a timely reminder of the potency of movie-going from one of cinema’s living legends. Finland's Best International Feature Film entry to the 96th Academy Awards. Winner of the Cannes Film Festival Jury Prize.

From extraordinary international cinema to Hollywood’s latest; must-see American indies to groundbreaking documentaries, big screen experiences daily at The Main Cinema, your neighborhood nonprofit movie theater.
