Shortly after tram driver Lauri loses his job, the restaurant where his wife Ilona works as head waitress closes down. Too proud to take social welfare cheques, they embark on an unforgiving search for work in a recession-hit Helsinki. Widely considered to be one of Aki Kaurismäki's finest films, Drifting Clouds is a comic masterpiece that transforms Lauri and Iiona's plight into a hugely affecting story of hope and survival.

One of the filmmaker’s most poignant and compassionate works... simply magic
