Le Havre

Finnish director Aki Kaurismäki (Leningrad Cowboys Go America, The Man Without a Past) takes us to a French port town for this sentimental fairy tale about an elderly shoeshine man (André Wilms) secretly helping a young African immigrant (Blondin Miguel) to reach his family in England. Like an offbeat, politically minded remake of Charlie Chaplin's The Kid, this half-silent farce milks laughs from deadpan awkwardness and drama from overt theatricality. 93 minutes
