"The most consistent filmmaker working today might be the Finnish master (Aki Kaurismäki), who produces a soft-spoken and mordant comedy every six years or so and never, ever misses the mark. Even by his high standards, Fallen Leaves is close to perfect.” —David Sim, The Atlantic

81 minutes; Finnish with English subtitles
