In the quintessential Kaurismäki film, He (Kari Väänänen) drives a tram while She (Kati Outinen) manages a restaurant. Both of them lose their jobs and have to start again.

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.

              – David Stratton, Retrospective Curator 


The potentially depressing subject matter is superbly offset by Kaurismäki's customary deadpan brand of gently absurdist comedy.Time Out
