Fallen Leaves (2023)

Aki Kaurismäki comedy romance is a delight.

It's the story of two people who collide together and kind of fall in love despite things getting in the way.

This was one of the films I missed at the New York Film Festival that was high on my must see list, I was hoping that the film wasn't going to disappoint me as several other had. When I finally sat down to watch it I got nervous since Kaurismaki's dry style hadn't really clicked, but then suddenly the wicked retorts started and I began to choke on my drink from laughing. 

Yes, this film is very mannered. If you have never seen one of Kaurismäki's films you have to get used to his rhythms and style, but once you do, this film will make you laugh and warm your heart.

I can not wait to see it again.
