From the award winning and internationally renowned director Aki Kaurismaki, comes this beautifully realized fable like story. When an African boy arrives by cargo ship in the port city of Le Havre, an aging shoe shiner takes pity on the child and welcomes him into his home. A journey of surprises awaits.
"Buster Keaton isn't dead, he's alive and well in Finland, where under a new identity he pursues his own particular brand of deadpan absurdism to wonderful effect. If the name Aki Kaurismäki doesn't mean anything to you, it should, and Le Havre may be the film to make it happen."
-Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"The setting is somewhere between a post-WWII Brigadoon and the environs of Marcel Carne's classic "Children of Paradise," but the story is as timely as this morning's news from Europe."
-Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"Le Havre offers plenty of things to talk about but perhaps the most remarkable part about it is its confidence of style and its sober-eyed sense of uplift."
-Chris Cabin, filmcritic.com
