Once Upon a Time In . . . Helsinki
Made available in HD for the first time in the UK by Curzon.
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.
