Le Havre

A film by Aki Kaurismäki
Starring André Wilms, Kati Outinen and Jean-Pierre Darroussin

A story about a shoe shiner who tries to save a refugee.

In this warm-hearted portrait of the harbor city that gives the film its name, fate throws young African refugee Idrissa (newcomer Blondin Miguel) into the path of Marcel Marx (André Wilms), a well-spoken bohemian who works as a shoe-shiner. With innate optimism and the unwavering solidarity of his community, Marcel stands up to officials doggedly pursuing the boy for deportation.
