Le Havre

lehavreAt the same time as the wife (Kati Outinen) of a Le Havre shoeshiner (Andr√© Wilms) falls ill, he decides to help an African kid (Blondin Miguel) who’s in the country illegally. Aki Kaurism√§ki returns to France after La Vie de Boh√©me (1992), and reunites with both Wilms and Evelyne Didi from that film, for a story about the little guy against an inhumane system. Stylized as always, and with obvious Marcel Carn√© themes (the lead character’s name is an interesting combination‚Ķ), the movie is very warm and relevant, especially as Europe turns increasingly anti-immigrant, but nothing really stands out.

2011-Finland-France-Germany. 93 min. Color. Produced, written and directed by Aki Kaurismäki. Cast: André Wilms (Marcel Marx), Kati Outinen (Arletty), Jean-Pierre Darroussin (Monet), Blondin Miguel, Elina Salo, Evelyne Didi.
