LE HAVRE

FILM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
RETURN
Aki Kaurismäki's Palme d'Or-nominated 'Le Havre' is a joyous and upbeat comedy that champions openness and understanding in a myopic world. The life of former author and well-known bohemian Marcel Marx is disrupted when his wife is diagnosed with a serious disease. When fate suddenly throws in his path an underage immigrant, Marcel once more has to rise against the cold wall of human indifference with his only weapon of innate optimism and the unwavering solidarity of the community. But against him stands the whole blind machinery of the Western constitutionally governed state, this time represented by the dragnet of the police, moment by moment drawing closer around the refugee boy . . .It's time for Marcel to polish his shoes and reveal his teeth. A glorious, colourful and deeply humane work. ★★★★ "Seductively funny, offbeat and warm-hearted, like the rest of his films, but with a new heartfelt urgency on the subject of northern Europe's attitude to desperate refugees" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
