I went to the movies yesterday to see Aki Kaurismäki‘s Le Havre. And believe me, I haven’t had such a great cinematic experience since … well; in a very-very long time -. To those of you who are not hooked on Hollywood drama: Try Le Havre!
It is, believe it or not, a commedy about illegal immigrants and death! Its set in France but is Finnish all the way through. It’s theatrical and symbolic. The pictures are fantastic! And the characters: beautiful!
I know this is a horrible review, but the only thing I really want to say, is this: Go see it!
