Fate throws a young African refugee into the path of a kindly old bohemian who shines shoes for a living in the French harbor city Le Havre. With feisty optimism and the backing of his tight-knit community, Marcel stands up to the authorities doggedly pursuing the boy for deportation - an absolute heartwarming story and one Kaurismaki’s finest films.
