Among Kaurismäki’s finest films, the Palme d’Or-nominated ‘Drifting Clouds’ follows the dwindling fortunes of restaurant hostess Ilona and her tram driver husband Lauri, who find themselves unemployed at the same time. Embarking on an unforgiving search for work in a recession-hit Helsinki, Kaurismäki’s comic masterpiece transforms the pair’s plight into a hugely affecting story of hope and survival.

“A sublime and perfect film about work and restaurants by the Finnish master of comic malaise, Aki Kaurismaki” - Ira Sachs
