Event Details

Indy Film Fest's inaugural Spring Film Series kicks off with Le Havre, a Sundance and Toronto Film Festival selection and Finland's official submission for Foreign Language Oscar consideration.

About the film: In this warmhearted portrait of the French harbor city that gives the film its name, fate throws young African refugee Idrissa (Blondin Miguel) into the path of Marcel Marx (André Wilms), a well-spoken bohemian who works as a shoeshiner. With innate optimism and the unwavering support of his community, Marcel stands up to officials doggedly pursuing the boy for deportation. A political fairy tale that exists somewhere between the reality of contemporary France and the classic cinema of Jean-Pierre Melville and Marcel Carné, Le Havre is a charming, deadpan delight. dir. Aki Kaurismäki / France/Finland 2011 / Color / 93 min / in French with English subtitles


Praise for Le Havre:

"Grade: A! A perfect, deadpan, impishly optimistic fairy tale." - Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly

"Four stars! There is nothing cynical or cheap about it, it tells a good story with clear eyes and a level gaze, and it just plain makes you feel good." - Roger Ebert, The Chicago Sun-Times

"Recommended! One of Aki Kaurismäki's warmest, most engaging films." - Mark Jenkins, NPR

"Pure pleasure!" - Kirk Honeycutt, The Hollywood Reporter Read all the praise about this gem of a film.
