    Witty, stylish, and heartwarming. The aesthetics and deadpan delivery keep the storytelling simple, with an even simpler message that people should help each other more often. 8 years 2 months ago

    What a wonderful, strange aesthetic, including the bizarre delivery from the actors. I thought the story was solid and came to a satisfying conclusion, though for me this was a film I enjoyed more for its mood and style. Although Le Havre did touch upon some important themes, the viewer would be reaching too hard if he were to attach any sort of lofty ideals to the plot. The hero conducted his heroism with the nonchalance of lighting a cigarette, which left us feeling that his altruism was normal, natural, no big deal at all.

    The song that plays during the closing credits is Matelot by The Renegades. I can't stop listening to it. Check it out.

    Not so brilliant, it seemed predictable enough, but i appreciate its style, its authenticity, its humanism. 4 years 5 months ago
