Mubi Announces UK & Irish Theatrical Release Date for Aki Kaurismäki’S Fallen Leaves

MUBI, the global distributor, streaming service and production company has announced the release date for Aki Kaurismäki’s (Le Havre, The Other Side of Hope) Fallen Leaves. The award-winning filmmaker makes a masterful return with this timeless, hopeful and satisfying love story that won the Jury Prize at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival.

Set in modern day Helsinki, Fallen Leaves tells the story of Ansa and Holappa, two lonely souls whose chance meeting at a local karaoke bar is beset by numerous hurdles. From lost phone numbers to mistaken addresses, alcoholism and a charming stray dog, the pair’s path to happiness is as bittersweet as it is ultimately delightful.

Shot through with Kaurismäki’s typically playful, idiosyncratic style and deadpan sense of humor, this tender romantic tragicomedy is both a loving tribute to the filmmaker’s beloved contemporaries and a timely reminder of the potency of movie-going from one of cinema’s living legends. .
