  • Conclusion: I couldn't help but smile when 'Le Havre' was over. It was a pleasure to watch and a pleasure to think about afterward. Far too few movies fall into a category like that. In a world filled with pessimism and snark, it's great to see a little movie like this that shines a spotlight on the...

  • Excerpt: Finnish director Aki Kaurismäki has largely been making variations on the same movie for more than three decades. (With some exceptions: most notably, 1990’s The Match Factory Girl , an utterly chilling, Medea-like story of revenge, and not coincidentally, one of his strongest effects by far.

  • Excerpt: The simplicity of this movie is material to why it will be enjoyed. It is warm hearted and unpretentious. Layers of difficult socio-political issues are pared back to create a story that humanises the plight of immigrants without visas.

  • Conclusion: Minulla ei ole pienintäkään aavistusta, miksi Le Havren kaltainen leffa on tehty. Raina kertoo kyllä oman tarinansa, mutta sanoma tuntuu olevan yhtä erikoinen kuin kaupassa käyminen tai laskujen maksaminen.

Filmofiel
3 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Een groter contrast tussen twee opeenvolgende films is waarschijnlijk niet mogelijk: van het brute war mongering van Act of Valor naar de wondere wereld van Ari Kaurismäki’s droogkomische maar ook maatschappijkritische ‘sprookjes’.
