MUBI announces UK & Irish theatrical release date for Aki Kaurismäki’s ‘FALLEN LEAVES’

MUBI has announced that Aki Kaurismäki’s (Le Havre, The Other Side of Hope) critically acclaimed new film, FALLEN LEAVES, will be released in cinemas in the UK and Ireland on 1st December 2023.

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 (Alma Pöysti) and Holappa (Jussi Vatanen), 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 humour, 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.
