Le Havre is the whimsical tale of Marcel Marx, a noted Parisian
author living in self-imposed exile in the port city of Le Havre.

for his bedridden wife, Marcel finds himself alive with a new sense
of purpose when he comes to the aid of a young African trying to
reunite with his mother in London and on the run from immigration

random acts of kindness, and small acts of revolution. The
film is NR, with subtitles. Awards include Cannes Film
Festival, FIPRESCI Prize; additional 11 wins, 16 nominations.
