A sort of "Divorce Finnish Style," Mika Kaurismäki's rambunctious comedy, The House of Branching Love , recounts the breakup of a thirty-something professional couple - Juhani, a family therapist, and his wife, Tuula, a successful business trainer.

- The quote Pekka speaks whilst in the house is from "Twelfth Night" by 莎士比亚. "Duke Orsino: If music be the food of love, play on, / Give me excess of it; that surfeiting, / The appetite may sicken, and so die." - Twelfth Night: Act 1, Scene 1.
- The Shakespearean quote used by Pekka in the garden is from "Macbeth" by 莎士比亚. "Macbeth: Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player / That struts and frets his hour upon the stage / And then is heard no more: it is a tale / Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, / Signifying nothing." - Macbeth: Act V, Scene 5.
- By far the most popular movie 米卡·考里斯马基 has ever directed during his long career. With more than 140,000 admissions it was 2nd highest grossing domestic film of the year in Finland.
