Foreign Cinema

Foreign Cinema Series: Le Havre (France, 2011; Not Rated)


Wednesday September 12, 2018
7:00 PM
The library is pleased to announce the fifth movie in our 2nd Annual “Foreign Cinema Series,” featuring eight entertaining and thought-provoking foreign films from Europe, Latin America, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Tonight's feature: Le Havre, a 2011 Cannes Film Festival winner film from France. In this warmhearted comic yarn from Aki Kaurismäki, fate throws young African refugee Idrissa into the path of Marcel, 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, Le Havre is a charming, deadpan delight and one of the Finnish director’s finest films.

All movies are subtitled in English. Light refreshments will be served.

This program supported by the Friends of the Library.
