Le Havre

  • Aki Kaurismäki
  • In French
  • 93 mins

Aki Kaurismäki, the Finnish master of deadpan, relocates to the French industrial port of Le Havre for this comedy drama. Playful yet tender, the film recounts the story of Marcel, a down-at-heel husband with an ad hoc shoeshine business and an ailing wife. Marcel risks all to rally his friends and neighbours to unite and help to protect a young African immigrant struggling to find his mother.
