Description & Features+

In this warmhearted comic yarn from Aki Kaurismäki (The Match Factory Girl), fate throws the young African refugee Idrissa (Blondin Miguel) into the path of Marcel Marx (La vie de bohème’s André Wilms), a kindly bohemian who shines shoes for a living, in the French harbor city Le Havre. With inborn optimism and the support of most of his tight-knit community, Marcel stands up to the officials doggedly pursuing the boy for deportation. A political fairy tale that exists somewhere between the reality of contemporary France and the classic French cinema of the past, especially the poetic realist works of Jean Duvivier and Marcel Carné, Le Havre is a charming, deadpan delight and one of the Finnish director’s finest films. SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES • New high-definition digital transfer, approved by director Aki Kaurismäki • New interview with actor André Wilms • Cannes Film Festival press conference from 2011, featuring cast and crew • French television interview with Kaurismäki, Wilms, and actors Jean-Pierre Darroussin and Kati Outinen • Concert footage of Little Bob, the rock group featured in the film • Trailer • New English subtitle translation • PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by film critic Michael Sicinski
