In this warmhearted portrait of the French harbor city that gives the film its name, fate throws young African refugee, Idrissa, into the path of Marcel Marx, 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, Le Havre is a charming, deadpan delight.
