Le Havre Details

In the harbour town of Le Havre young African refugee Idrissa, an illegal immigrant on the run, is helped to hide from the authorities by Marcel, a well-spoken bohemian shoeshine man. Full of Kaurismäki’s deadpan wit Le Havre adds a graceful note of sweetness and uplift. It’s seductively funny and offbeat but with an urgency on the subject of Europe’s attitude to refugees. The drollery in no way undermines the emotional force of this satisfying, lovable film infused with an ingenuous, Chaplinesque simplicity. An understated pleasure.

Dir: Aki Kaurismaki
