Fallen Leaves | Valentine’s Day Event Screening

With a complimentary glass of sparkling and a heart-shaped chocolate on arrival!

Watch Trailer

Fall in love with the critically acclaimed Fallen Leaves, the new masterful comedic romance from Finland’s most beloved director, Aki Kaurismäki!

This Special Event Screening includes a complimentary glass of sparkling and a heart-shaped chocolate on arrival – perfect for Valentine’s date night!

Hailed as the best-reviewed film of the 2023 Cannes Film Festival – where it topped Screen International’s prestigious critics’ poll – the beguiling new comedic romance from celebrated auteur Aki Kaurismäki (Le Havre, Drifting Clouds, The Other Side Of Hope) follows two lost souls who meet by chance in the Helsinki night and then try, in turbulent times, to find companionship.

Ansa (Alma Pöysti) works at a supermarket, where the job is so badly paid that she takes home expired sandwiches for dinner. Holappa (Jussi Vatanen) is a metalworker, labouring in a job so hazardous he’s sure it will kill him, so he drinks through the day, and then again at night. Meanwhile, the radio constantly carries news about the nearby war in Ukraine. One evening, against his will, Holappa is dragged to a karaoke bar by a friend. “Tough guys don’t sing”, he says. But karaoke night is also a night for romance, and when Holappa meets the shy Ansa, there’s an immediate spark. But life being what it is, a variety of obstacles conspire to get in the way…

With his trademark deadpan humour, minimalist dialogue and retro aesthetic, Kaurismäki’s latest delight showcases his unrivalled mastery for depicting down-on-their-luck characters in all their complexity, and finding humour and optimism in the unlikeliest of circumstances. In a time of economic disparity, war and uncertainty, Fallen Leaves is a valuable reminder of the importance of love and connection.

Verona Closing Event:

To our Sydney customers, this special event screening will also be our much-loved Verona location’s Closing Event – a fitting date as we opened Verona on Valentine’s Day all the way back in 1996! Attendees will receive an extra special gift in addition to the sparkling and chocolate, we’ll also be providing a Verona tote bag that will include film quotes from Verona’s top 10 films of all time.
