Le Havre
 
 
Directed by Aki Kaurismäki, Finland 2011
93 mins. French dialogue with English sub-titles
 
Summary:
 
Affectionate, whimsical portrait of impoverished but generous folk of a run-down waterfront who take in a boy stowaway from Congo.  A love letter to France and French cinema from the Finnish master of deadpan humour.  Winner of Film Critics' Prize at 2011 Cannes Film Festival.
 
What the Critics say:
 
"I was on cloud nine throughout the film: that place of Technicolored rapture where Kaurismäki fans dwell, and where past, present and oneiric future are rolled celestially into one."  (Nigel Andrews - Financial Times)
