[Kaurismaki] distinctive, austerely hip, deadpan bleak viewpoint is back again in "Drifting Clouds."
In addition to achieving a paradoxical balance of mirth and melancholy, Drifting Clouds is a dark, mostly interior movie with a color scheme as big as all outdoors.
True to his temperament, Kaurismaki has made another funny-sad movie about the tenuousness of life, in all its ambiguity and nonsensical symmetry.
Kaurismaki has enormous love for these characters. He embraces their comic pathos, and rejoices that they do not surrender.
What can be said about Drifting Clouds can be said about hangdog Finnish humor in general: it's making the best of a depressing situation.
Nokia, Finlandia Vodka, and Aki Kaurismäki. Three exceptional Finnish exports of particular interest. ?Drifting Clouds blossoms.
The film builds to a happier mood than many of the director's previous works; offbeat, droll twists and details add to its appeal.
A film touched by the absurd and the hopeful.
One of the funniest and most humane movies of recent note.
Finnish film by Aki Kaurismäki, and the first in a loose trilogy with THE MAN WITHOUT A PAST and LIGHTS IN THE DUSK. Filmed in a strangely timeless manner and funny in a very underplayed way, this is about a couple trying to make the best of a bad job when they both lose theirs. Glum.
