Aki Kaurismäki, Le Havre, 2011

Members' Screening: Le Havre

27 May 2017

In this warmhearted comic yarn from Aki Kaurismäki, fate throws young African refugee Idrissa into the path of Marcel Marx, a kindly old bohemian who shines shoes for a living in the French harbor city of Le Havre. With inborn optimism and the support of his tight-knit community, Marcel stands up to the officials doggedly pursuing the boy for deportation.

A political fairy tale that exists somewhere between the reality of contemporary France and the classic French cinema of the past, Le Havre is a charming, deadpan delight and one of the Finnish director’s finest films.
