 When a young African stowaway arrives by cargo ship in the port city of Le Havre, Marcel, an ageing shoe shiner takes pity on the child and, with the assistance of friendly neighbours and locals, hides him from the police.

Like ‘The Other Side of Hope’ – which proved hugely popular when screened earlier this Season by RFS – ‘Le Havre’ is another instalment in Kaurismäki’s proposed trilogy about life in port cities. Once again, it deals with immigration and attitudes to refugees but it does so with all of Kaurismäki’s trademark lightness of touch, drollery and deadpan humour. The result is an offbeat, warmhearted and charming film, which garnered fifteen awards worldwide, including at the 2011 Cannes, Chicago and Munich Film Festivals.

Directed By: Aki Kaurismäki

Written By: Aki Kaurismäki
