Drifting Clouds

A couple lose their jobs and have to start again in this Cannes Palme d'Or-nominated comedy drama from Finnish auteur Aki Kaurismäki.

"Dedicated to the late Matti Pellonpää, Drifting Clouds sees Kaurismäki’s characteristically deadpan style and deceptively simple storytelling result in a quietly hilarious and uplifting tale of perseverance over adversity. As with many films by this director, it’s only when the characters have reached rock bottom that they are given an opportunity for deliverance – and there’s another great role for a devoted dog." (Sydney Film Festival)

True to his temperament, Kaurismaki has made another funny-sad movie about the tenuousness of life, in all its ambiguity and nonsensical symmetry.

Kaurismaki has enormous love for these characters. He embraces their comic pathos, and rejoices that they do not surrender.
