A good movie

11 months, 3 weeks ago at Feb 17 22:45
Even though I have seen a couple of movies directed by Aki Kaurismaki, I'm far from being an expert on his work but since this movie (like most of the other movies he has done) received some very good reviews, I was really eager to check it out. On top of that, the action was set in France which made it even more intriguing to me. Eventually, like all the other movies directed by this guy, I adm... read more
View all Le Havre reviews
Description: Aki Kaurismäki doesn’t lose his own style. Eccentric, expressive heroes, sparse, well prepared shots and strong, explicit gestures are the distinguishing features of his works. But in Le Havre, which was awarded the FIPRESCI award in Cannes, the Finnish director abandons his grim vision of society. He proposes to the viewers a universal story about the power of goodness. Refugees deserve a voice in the cinema – said the director. – I can’t make realistic films about society, so I tell a fable. I don’t have faith in a better future. But others can still regain it. A shoeshiner, with a story to tell lives in the epony ... (more)

A good movie

“Even though I have seen a couple of movies directed by Aki Kaurismaki, I'm far from being an expert on his work but since this movie (like most of the other movies he has done) received some very good reviews, I was really eager to check it out. On top of that, the action was set in France which made it even more intriguing to me. Eventually, like all the other movies directed by this guy, I admired the work done, I even enjoyed the damned thing and, yet, I can’t say I was really blown away by the whole thing. I mean, Kaurismaki has an interesting directing style and there is something quite unique about the dreary mood and the dead-pan humor he provides but I guess it's just not my kind of thing. On top of that, even though it was taking place in a realistic social background, it fe” read more

"22.8. Ei vahvinta Kaurismäkeä, mutta kyllä tämän kivuttomasti katsoo, ja leffan parissa viihtyy."

August Movie Journal - Xanadon't (23 movies items)

" Nearly everything about this movie set in a small harbor-town on the north French shore has a vintage feel to it- despite the topical subject matter surrounding immigration issues. It plays like a cross between Italian neorealism and French New Wave Cinema, and the camera treats its setting and human subjects with minimal flair and flamboyance. The performances are strong- perhaps stronger than the characters themselves, as written- and there is a steady (I'm tempted to suggest sluggish) move"
