The film

Synopsis

Among Aki Kaurismäki's finest films, 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, the comic masterpiece transforms the pair's plight into a hugely affecting story of hope and survival.
